One of the very few critters that I have spotted recently, everything seems to be in hiding, trying to keep warm and dry now.
It is believed that flies regurgitate their food as a bubble, so that some of the water evaporates off it, thus reducing the volume of the meal and concentrating it.
Ugh.....that description sounded awful Carol....but what amazing macro photography...
That's brilliant. Carol.
(I thought they did it to spread infection so that they had more people on which to lay eggs!)
Well captured with fine details, Carol. Super +
Never seen so much detail on a fly Carol they normally get squashed cracking macro though.
Glad they are only as big as this in excellent macro images.
Superb macro portraits.
I know babies do much the same thing, Carol
Well, thanks very much for the, oh so graphic, description, accompanied by an image with so much detail, it could have been straight out of The Day of The Triffids. Glad I already had breakfast and Praise The Lord, I didn't see any of these in the kitchen...
Surely puts you off breast feeding in public?
Cloudy and cool in Nairobi this morning, hoping for the sun to break through & get some warmth into my bones - otherwise, I shall demand a refund..!
Super macro images Carol,
Incredible detail Carol - V1 is stunning.
Brilliant images Carol - and where do you get your information!!

Fantastic detail, Carol.
A fantastic image of a not so fantastic creature ! Very good detail and colours and composition and ........ everything! --- Jukka.
That's an interesting fact re. V 2, Carol: and what a beauty V 1 is.......well subject not exactly beautiful but beautifully captured, the detail immaculately recorded.
Not your most attractive subject matter Carol but the level of detail is astounding.
Yuk, Carol but great photo……….
V1 cracker Carol superb detail
V1 the shot technically, V2 the story...
V1 has that swot it feel, I've had one in my room and been after it maybe I should of photographed it. :O)
v2 has interest and depth.
Both shots have terrific detail and clarity Carol (still think they're horrid though) - the fly not your shots.!
I even found bluebottles sunbathing on our wall this week, it's so warm here for winter.
Horrid thing, but super shot.
He stands out well against that leaf - an interesting fact Carole.
Stunning detail in V1 and very interesting V2 - my goodness you know your stuff.
You even manage to make flies beautiful and interesting Carol.
brilliant not very good table manners though
Yes they blow out & suck back. A great set.
Awesome and the fact is we humans blow from the other end, can you now imagine all the flies going yuk yuk. wonderful awesome detail on V1 and great write up.
More than I ever needed to know about the fly
I am so impressed with the macro capabilities of that fine little camera!
I'm glad I've already eaten my lunch!! But two great close-ups of this fly, Carol
Hope you have a great Christmas and New Year
This is one of your best shots ever Carol and that means that it is extra extra special.
