Dear Louise, I am inclined to agree that flies, whether houseflies, blue or green bottles, do not have a great deal to commend them. But, as your posting shows, that metallic green is quite startling.

Amazing creations of the Creator...

Very artistically captured ~ swirling motions add a dreamy quality in addition to the metallic colours contrasting with a softer background.

Yeuch - how beautiful!

Hope they are swimming, not drowning. (I think.)

sometimes one should just a magnifying glass to things to really 'look'... I like lying on my tum on the grass and staring into it to see what is there close up.
