Elle a de très belles couleurs.
Ray: Ils sont des mouches très colorées, Martine, mais ont une mauvaise réputation pour la ruine des fêtes barbecue.
One of my most unfavorite... but an excellent photo of him!
Ray: They do have bad PR, Elizabeth!

Why are flies so photogenic wink.. Love those eyes.
Ray: Yes...flies are very handsome and capable critters, Astrid.
Fabulous eyes and DOF, Ray
Ray: Their eyes are like blood rubies, Ginnie.

Living at the edge!
Ray: For some reason, Philine, I like taking pictures of small garden critters standing at the edge of leaves.

Love its gorgeous red eyes
Ray: It is a startlingly handsome critter, Chris...pity about its habits.

Normally the first sign of the sun him and thousands of his bluebottle chums make straight for my house but so far I've not yet seen any - luckily! His eyes are incredible- no wonder they avoid all attempts to murder them.
Ray: Incredibly successful species, Alan, and have adapted well by stealing from BBQ's on every continent!
Ah, the imaginatively named fly. These are the things I helplessly wave rolled up newspapers at to no avail. When I was young they did not escape.
Ray: Resistance is futile, Chad...these critters will be still around long after the BBQ builders have been wiped out!
Horrible things flies but remarkable creatures
Ray: I am pretty relaxed about flies, Bill, even greenbottles with their outrageous behaviour.

Looks like someone cut it's nose off. Great eyes.
Ray: Yes...I often think its features would be improved with a decent snozz, Louis.
Incredible capture of those eyes.
Ray: You can nearly forgive the outrageous BBQ manners when a critter has such gorgeous eyes, Mary.
A multi colour one, I like it.
Ray: Heat up a BBQ and these guys show up, Brian.
Another winner, Ray!
Ray: Its eyes are just about the most beautiful among all insects, Tom.
