Beautiful shot of one of my favorite butterflies. Can’t say that the fly is a favorite, but nice shot too. 🙂

Thanks Mike! It’s getting increasingly difficult to find bugs to photograph here so I have to settle with what I find. 😉

Thanks John! I’ve never been a fan of flies but I have to admit they become more interesting when looking through a macro lens.

Great shots – yikes, what (who) does a “flesh fly” eat??? I agree entirely with thegreyeye – your tagline is a joy!

Thanks BJ! I agree the word “Flesh” sounds a bit unnerving. They are named so because they hatch maggots (instead of eggs, like other flies) on dead animals, dung, decaying material, or open wounds of mammals. (yikes)

The detail on the flesh fly is truly amazing, both shots are really superb.
