flies

Blow me down

This fly takes the cake and eats it (probably literally). I thought my picture of a fly a few weeks back was pretty good (click here), but Bryan, this one is a beauty and has to be shared!. No research – don’t know what it is, so it will remain “Bryan’s Fly” until we find out differently.

Australia has some pretty weird and wonderful insects and flies have their special place in the environment, usually associated with breaking down protein, but are also useful pollinators. Great colours on this one and probably a ‘must enter’ for the Flowerdale Landcare Photography competition in July.

BTW; Wasp nest kills to 14.3.17…………  29
