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.

A most impressive 'monster' Carol.
We'll have to find you a new genre to fill in with when the bugs are scarce.
How about seashells?

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
