The green bottle fly is uncommonly green but has a typical fly-like predilection for rotting flesh. Turns out that makes it quite useful – from maggot therapy to forensic science. Perhaps this one was unique among flies; I found him getting herby with our sage plant.

GReat detail! but i agree–i HATE them even if they are useful! smash ’em!
Wonderful photo detail… and interesting description!
As flies go, that is a neat shot. I don’t recall seeing a green fly. We just have plain black ones out here in the country.
I agree WOW and great shot. Oh boy though, flies still look creepy and gross, blah smash them.
WOW, what detail! That really is a great shot!
Great shot! I love these close-ups. Lots of detail here. Nicely done.
