I shot this, this morning in the garden. On uploading it to PC, I found this blob. Someone asked on facebook where I just posted "Is it drinking water?" And I am also curious to know what this is doing. Anyone know?
What is this fly doing - water blob
Looks like a blow fly (Calliphoridae); may just be regurgitating...
Thanks Flap. I also read now that it was believed to 'blow eggs', hence 'blowfly'. But not sure if that belief is a fact. Regurgitating? Nice clear liquid, so round and hanging!
It sure is a colorful fly!
Dinu, I love that picture of you! :)
It looks like this is the very species.
