Ugly bug 2 (Lucilia sericata)

For more INFO: (Lucilia sericata)

This is our common green fly ... but see in this mango fruit makes "almost" looks pretty ... however, is a rather nasty bug, which are preference by rotten meat and manure ... this has enhanced their sense of taste, and is satisfied with a sweet slice of mango! :)

Do not miss the WORKSHOP is really ugly!

Thanks by stop and visit!

Ciao Jesus. Il connubio frutta/insetti si sta dimostrando una idea vincente e nuova. Incredibile dettgalio e resa dei colori. Bravissimo!


Ciao Jesus, questa č veramente brutta e fastidiosa, somiglia moltissimo alla nostra, la macro perň č splendida, fantastico il WS con la spiritromba in primo piano, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Hello MF Jesús,
Excellent capture, very sharp, with bright colours!
I think you must come on this continent to see real "ugly" bugs... This one (we have it too) has nice green colours and red eyes. For me, it is among the most beautiful flies! I hope the male flies would like her (yes, it is a female...) :)

  • Great

Hi Jesus
Une jolie photo de cette mouche, avec de bons détails et de jolies couleurs. Bonne composition et POV également. . La photo est trčs belle, félicitation !...JP

hello Jesús

WOW ! i am with out words, 2 superb macro photos,
always fine POV, superb focus great sharpness and details,

there is the new FinePix HS10 that Fujifilm will launch in april
but since 2 or 3 days i am also considering (at his place)
a compact by Canon, the G11, the decision i will take
it when i will see photos from the FinePix HS10,
the reason why i am writting it on your photo Jesús
is because you are a Canon compact user,



Haha:) what a lucky fly that it found your Mango:D
Great and technically perfect macro capture with the lighting effect and flawless focus MF Jesus!
Great work!
TFS and havea nice day!


Hello Jesus
perhaps an ugly bug but a beautiful shot, this fly is crisp clear sharp and taken from a nice POV, great contrast against the Orange fruit
Very well done and have a good noght

Bonito y atractivo trabajo Jesús. Gran enfoque como de costumbre y bien captados los llamativos colores y contrastes. Esta no la tengo aún, solamente la L. caesar.
Un abrazo.
