Come fly with me

It was my morning walk with Callie and I had the camera. The sun was up but there was a little chill in the air. I noticed more than one fly sunning themselves on leaves and flowers. They hadn't warmed up enough yet to react quickly and they let me get really close with the camera.

A red-eyed fly suns itself on an acacia leaf.

Still, I didn't have time to take more than one shot of each before they flew away. This one is the best photo I got.


  1. Hello:
    What a very vivid and clear image. Are these red-eyed flies peculiar to your area? Or is it that normally one fails to notice them?

  2. I think he's got at least a couple of his eyes on you....

  3. Beautiful Shot! Even if it's of a yucky fly.
    It's not crying "Help me! Help meeee!"
    Is it?

  4. Am I the only one who thinks this looks like you caught the fly just after he took a dump?

  5. They lost all the comments.


Tell me what you think!
