Roger

By Fefe
I think this is a first for me, a fly 😛😛 ...no idea what variety of fly but if memory serves me right he was only a little fella ...one of those annoying blighters that flit about from plant to plant via your face, I think 🤨
Taken in August last year, in the garden. So I have been sitting on this a while...poor Roger 😆😆
No idea why I have named him Roger .....
Please view large.

Thank you so much for the response to my last upload 😊😊

Rodger is a great name for a fly.
Rodger the Dodger.... as he dodges the fly spray you have in the cupboard.

Not my favourite of flying objects, but a super close-up capture of your friend, Diane - he looks even more nasty large! 😁 I'd have swatted him rather than think of photographing him.... 😳

Absolutely fantastic definition.

Late on this one Diane, someone told me about Roger, but I think this is Bertie his brother 🙂 Wonderfully detailed image, he says he hopes you will take more this summer, he’ll come back with some friends 🙂
