Flyday: Common Flesh Fly

During the summer months I photographed a lot! Fellow nature photographers can probably relate 😉 While sorting and editing the pictures, I noticed that quite a few of my pictures featured flies. So I decided to share these pictures with you on Friday – or as it’s called from now on: Flyday!

To kick off the first Flyday, here are 2 pictures of the Common flesh fly (Sarcophaga carnaria). This one is very common in Europe and Africa and not bound to a specific habitat. Larvae live on flesh where it eats other flesh-eating larvae. The adults feed on nectar and sometimes feaces.
