You've probably never seen a fly this beautiful #Luciliasericata #macro

The common green bottle fly (Lucilia sericata) is well known as a pollinator and for their important use in forensic research. That's right! Forensic scientists have used these flies for years to figure out how long a human corpse has been decomposing, as these flies are the first to arrive on the scene. Lucilia larvae need decaying tissue to survive and hatch in a mere 9 hours, depending on the temperature. They're also used in maggot therapy to help heal wounds! Anyways, I had fun watching this one feed on nectar today.

Head to head with a common greenbottle #luciliasericata

Sometimes I find dead #commongreenbottleflies #LuciliaSericata on leaves in my garden. I was reading this is often caused by the fungus #EmpusaMuscae. Any ideas @dllavaneras

Groene vleesvlieg op een vlinderstruik - Bottle Fly on a butterfly bush.
Eigenlijk nooit geweten dat vliegen ook nectar eten, totdat ik ze eens van heel dichtbij ging bekijken 🌸🌺 Actually never knew that flies love nectar, until I took a very close look at them 🌸🌺

Another green bottle fly (Lucilia sericata) from my sister's back yard in Roscoe Village - this time resting on an echinacea flower. I know most people think of these flies as just a nuisance, but their larvae are used in maggot therapy, and their secretions are being studied for treating MRSA infections. They are amazing creatures and absolutely beautiful up close to boot.

My niece and I spent some time in her backyard today taking photographs. She loved it, except for the part when I became slightly obsessed with the flies. But, I mean, come on! This green bottle fly (Lucilia sericata) is so gorgeous on this delphinium!
