Ever wondered what a fly really looked like?
I can’t say that I did, but since getting this macro lens I’m a sucker for the eyes.
But this stationary Sarcophaga aurifrons gave me that opportunity. Tastefully decked out in bright colours, it was perched on some equipment in the garden, seemingly unfazed by our presence.
Though I’m sure the flash wasn’t entirely to its liking.
There’s not much more to tell you about the Grey Flesh Fly, other than it likes to hang around carrion (dead animals) and rotting vegetation.
This grey flesh fly became an active member of the food chain (ants) once the modelling had finished.
Puns about red eye reduction happily overlooked.
