This weekend the Man was busily working in the garden again and, of course, my help was
of very little use completely invaluable despite the fact that there were lots of things needing to be photographed.
Late in the day I took
yet another a break and wandered up the Hill to have a poke around, literally stumbling upon this fly with brilliant green eyes when I was looking for a good spray of flowers to photograph.
Australian flies are quite well know for being extremely annoying. As soon as the weather fines up the flies come out and it seems that there is nothing you can do to be rid of them.
Before I started photographing them I never realized we had such a surprising diversity of flies. Every time I go out to take photos I see different ones and that makes me suspect that they aren’t all bad, it is just those horrible little black buggers and the big fat blowies that give all the others a bad name!
I have also included the pic of the same fly from behind for your amusement. The butt end is not the angle I usually aim for but couldn’t resist taking the shot when given the chance 😉
