Avatar dead fly

Calliphora vomitoria


One of my first nature photographs. - A dead Bluebottle fly hangs on threads of an abandoned and ruined spider web in the backyard hut.

This one I have chosen to use as my avatar on this board of Project Noah.

Also with this 65th spotting I have earned my 'Naturalist' patch - Yeah! (;


Photo was taken by night, in a blind dark room, with flashlight of a 1st generation, "buttons-drive" mobile phone so it is not best sharp, nor... any interesting. Only the overall effect that grabbed my imagination - like a skull with the bones. * Beautiful geometry everywhere in nature - even after life.

Please comment if disagree with ID, or if disagree even doing attempt to ID something from such a mistaken shot! (:
