Nice shot of this fly with nice colors. Perhaps framing a little to heavy but that's personal.

Another of your great flies. They seem to be hovering around you and posing for you. Gorgeous red eyes and bottle green body. The sheen on its wings seem so special. Excellent POV to study its anatomy and a lovely smooth green BG. Very nicely composed and 'framed'. Kudos.
I will watch this space closely for another big and interesting debate about its ID.

It is so nice this entity was near the edge of the leaf. It give me a feeling of more than one subject or perhaps a major subject and a minor as well eh?
On second glance I noticed red eyes. Lovely. the wings are "unreal". Can you see this closely with your eyes as well as your lens? Surely you must.

This is definitely a species of Green Bottle. this shot is sharp and shows enough detail to be able to identify it. Nice composition on the leafy BG.
My research suggests Lucilia caesar, an outdoor species that prefers sunshine and to lay its eggs on meat out in the open.
I haven't used the net to follow this up, though.
TFs and best wishes, Ivan

Green Bottle Flies in Malta vary in size [as you indicated in your note]. In a local publication it is listed as Lucilia Sericata, but from research on the web, Lucilia Caesar seems to be the right name. The latter manifests hairs on the back of the thorax.
As regards your shot, the compo is excellent and I believe you did well to blur out the BG. Colours are very natural but sharpness, I think could be a lot better. I like the idea of a 'heavy' frame to offset the size of the shot.
