I suppose their wings become tattered with age as those of butterflies do. Your introduction made me smile: “Meet Lucilia sericata”, sounds like the kind of name used for a rather evil character in a novel. Mind you, those hairs could be off-putting 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you Anne. I suppose it has been around the block a few times, like some of the butterflies you mention! Ha ha, it does sound kind of evil. LikeLike Reply Fantastic LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Tank you rabirius! LikeLike Reply Excellent photos Pete. Very Nice.

And also credit to both macro lens and photographer. Sadly though, no dinner invite for Lucilla. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I wouldn’t invite Lucilla to dinner either lol! 🙂 Thank you Jill. I really love the shine and colours on these things. Must take a lot of polishing to keep them in that condition 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Maybe they brush against a Brasso plant.
