I find flies to be pretty disgusting but, along with bees and ants, they are probably among the easiest insects to photograph so when given a chance I’ll click away.
The one below is a flesh fly. Unlike most flies, flesh flies deposit maggots or hatching maggots on dead animals, decaying vegetation, and even in open wounds on animals while other flies deposit eggs – hence the reason why I find flies disgusting.
I just loved the ants and aphids on my cosmos flower stems. They, the ants and aphids, were so interesting. On some flower stems it was black ants with red ants on other flowers, but the flowers were always cosmoses.
Unfortunately, when it comes to ants and aphids photos I seem to be a hoarder. I need to let some go. And stop taking the photos.
Thank you for stopping by.
