Bluebottles Still Buzzin

Bluebottle Calliphoridae Sp

It’s the end of October and I am amazed at the amount of insect life that is still flying around. I have seen butterflies, although not many now, but plenty of flies and hoverflies, and the odd bee. Oh, and loads of wasps. Here is a Bluebottle (Calliphoridae sp.) catching some sun. I am always taken by the metallic, shiny blue abdomen of these distinctive blowflies.
