I'd run out of images to upload to ePZ, so had to go out and trawl around for something to upload this morning, and all I could find was this very pale green eyed fly Sad

What a beautiful colour his eyes are, so strange that a fly being so discreet with his colouring has such bright eyes. I can see Isabel hunting for green- eyed flies all over from now on.

I can see you in his wings, Carol.
Looks like he's sitting on something disgusting.
Another day, another great shot.

Love that iridescent green in both the eyes and to a lesser extent in it's wings: a most unusually coloured fly.

You run out of images Carol, that is unheard of! What amazing coloured eyes this fly has, apart from that he's quite dull and drab. When I saw your title I thought you'd had a visit from the Big O and I was about to see some shots of him on the beach or beside your pool clad in his speedos!BlushBlushBlush
