Greenbottles

There are hoverflies and drone flies in Hoo Wood this morning, but I managed to photograph greenbottles. The name green bottle fly, or greenbottle fly, is applied to numerous species of Calliphoridae and blow fly in the genera Lucilia and Phaenicia.

I find flies almost impossible not to photograph in the absence of other more exciting insects. I’m not obsessed with them, though.
