Flies are everywhere and quite frankly, I think they get a bad rap! Yes some can eat disgusting things, annoy you while you're eating, damage crops and transmit diseases but they also help with forensic and genetic science, pollination, and act as weed biocontrol agents. Many are quite beautiful and have a large variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Some have an amazing ability to mimic bees, wasps and mosquitoes. Others just hold their own. I hope people take a good look at the diversity of flies and appreciate all that they are! :)
