Flies and a Flyer

Okay we’re moving away from flowers and on to insects.

 

This is a green bottle fly; a type of blow fly.  These are the types of flies normally used to determine how long a person has been dead or to date a crime scene on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and other crime shows on TV or in the movies.

 

This is a flesh fly – a disgusting name and for me flies are probably the most disgusting insect that I see on a routine basis.

 

This insect flies but it’s a skipper not a fly.  Maybe skippers are not as abundant as flies but I see a lot more skippers than flies, except when I’m around trash cans or rotting organic matter – which I try not to be.

 

Whoa!  How did that flower sneak in here.  Oh yeah, it’s a zinnia.  There everywhere too, at least in my garden.

 

This is the same green bottle fly as the first photo but I moved up closer.

 

Thank you for stopping by.
