1 Greenbottle Hanging On

Greenbottle fly (Lucilia sp.) on basking Bracken. There are a number of different species of Greenbottle fly, all having this bright metallic greenish sheen to them, and they are hard to accurately identify without careful scrutiny.

These blowflies are often seen resting on foliage or flowers, and rarely enters our houses.They are abundant and widespread throughout. The female lays her eggs in dung, carrion or in the wounds of living animals.
