good evening has you
for this evening it will be a kind of fly, called Lucilia Sericata, more communénemt < the fly verte> about the DIPTEROUS
Cut: 10-14 mm length, is slightly larger than the domestic fly. It is announced by a colouring brilliant, metal, blue-green or green-but with black spots.
The wings are clear, with veins brown pale. The legs and the antennas are black.
The larvae of this fly are employed in asticothérapie by certain hospitals and traditional medicines, to look after certain wounds.

Reproduction and cycle of life
The eggs are laid out of packages of a score, in the wounds of an animal, a carcass, or fabrics necrosed.

The larva is a pale yellow maggot or grisâtre-white which reaches 10 to 14 millimetres length, eats the animal fabrics necrosed to which it develops into two to ten days (according to temperature), before hiding in the ground to form there a cocoon (pupe) from where the adult will emerge. By cold time, the pupes and the adults cease any activity (hibernation) while waiting for more lenient temperatures.

I hope that these explanations and that you will be useful for you will like this image. photograph left with the naturalness, a just little added contrast.
thank you for your comments and good evening has all.

This is an excellent shot Edith. The point of focus is right where it needed to be, and the fly is really sharp.
It's not all about the fly though - I also like how you placed the leaf within the frame, especially the way the tip leads towards the corner.
Technically superb, and you've depicted this everyday (and sometimes annoying!) insect beautifully.
We call them bluebottles here in the UK.

You have captured this very colorful fly perfectly. It is posing so nicely for you with the wings in that position. And it placed itself in just the right spot on the leaf. Beautiful colors, excellent sharpness and a lovely composition.

Bonjour Edith,
Très jolie "composition" de cette mouche verte sur la belle feuille dentelée.Excellente netteté. Très bien vu. J'ai juste une demande concernant la couleur verte que tu as souvent sur tes photos. Il me semble qu'elle est un peu forte quelque fois.Est-ce que tu la renforces avec photoshop?
Bon weekend encore

Hello Edith,
This is a very beautiful photograph of the Greenbottle fly. The colours, definition and sharpness are spot on. I also like the diagonal leaf across the picture and the position of the fly.
Well done,

Hi Edith
Very nice photo of Lucilia with great light and nice saturated green. Very good simple composition
Best wishes

Hi Edith,
Nice shot. Very sharp and well saturated image. I like this pov and composition. Very well done.

hi edith,
very fine capture, i liked the pov, the sharpness of the image, the colours(specially the shades of green)very much, the framing suits well,
well done,
tfs & regards

I have never thought of these as very pretty. How unusual and how colorful and clear. I enjoy this very much.


Hello Edith,
That fly is pin sharp and with excellent rich colours!
A well composed presentation completes a fine job!

rien à redire ! couleurs et netteté... digne de toi !

Hi Edith,
A beautifully composed shot of this blowfly. Very nice green colors with excellent details and POV. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Well Edith, I must spend time browsing your gallery now I have viewed some thumbnails. Your compositions and colours are so brilliant. I have not yet seen this fly look so good.You should make some prints of this and some others. The leaf it is one is such a compliment, as is the colour of background. Thanks...Merci.

Hi Edith.
What a perfect composition and superb reproduction of the fly. Bravo. Great close-up work. Amazing colours and very good sharpness of the main subject. Well lightened and coloured BG is amazing too. My compliments and TFS.

Very good detail and composition, colors seems a bit oversaturated.

Well done

un petit peu de bruit sur le BG mais la feuille et la mouche s'en detache bien et les couleurs metalisées sont superbes.

Hello Edith!

Very nice and sharp shot, with beatiful and vivid colours! TFS.
