The Flies

Carrion Fly

The beetles (order Coleoptera) are famous for being the most diverse group of animals on the planet.  The flies, however, are not too far behind and many people are surprised to hear how many forms and places flies can be found.  I have been able to find and photograph a few of these forms in my own backyard and will share them here.  I photographed this carrion fly (Calliphoridae) hanging out on my rosinweed.
