stacked portrait of a blue bottle fly (photo)


Hi all,

The photo below is a portrait of a blue bottle fly that is one of the pictures that went up on my blog yesterday. These are a common type of blow fly that has the delightful scientific name of Calliphora vomitoria. Considering that these flies feed on carrion, their scientific name seems rather appropriate...

Cheers

I went to a reply that was below the picture went half way up the picture and with the orangish brown kind of reminded me of the cheeto guy.

Is that a self portrait?

All kidding aside you're darn good with the stacking.

Thanks...I'm getting there. Sometime soon (when I get time) I want to start experimenting with microscope lenses to get closer and improve the resolution...

Don't they vomit digestive enzymes on their food and then suck it back up?
