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.

  1. Thank goodness you’re not obsessed with them but your mild interest is great fun for your readers. What a cracking shot.

    • Thanks, Tom. I might be on the edge of being obsessed with flies, but it will pass when there are different insects to photograph.
