Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
I came across a small metallic green fly and was able to snap a macro photo with my iPhone olloclip.
I was using my iPhone olloclip and couldn't believe this fly stood still for so long.
Thanks for the comments Francis, Satyen, Karen and thanks for the help with the ID Forest Dragon!
This was the stuff of nightmares for me before I discovered Project Noah but now I can really appreciate the beauty of these guys!
This is a species of Blow Fly. Most likely a Common Green Bottle Fly, but several of these flies look very similar. Check here:http://bugguide.net/node/view/53775 http://bugguide.net/node/view/232115 Nice photo!
