Common Greenbottle Blowfly

Lucilia sp


Another nocturnal spotting of a fly. Flies like this spend the night at the end of bare twigs. When I blunder through the bush they cannot land after being disturbed because they cannot see in the dark so they land close to light sources such as this which had landed on a steel street light pole. Changed to just the genus
