It is difficult not to find "disgusting". This is a fly that here is known as "blowfly". it was besides in a board of meats... uuuuhhhhgggg!

Dic. Aurélio: "S. f. Bras. Zool.
1. designation common to the species of flies that make posture in the meat. The eggs (you search), put together, they are, in general, whitish; the larvas have the name of it bug-searches.
2. insect díptero, califorídeo (Cochliomya macellaria), characterized by having the last segment of the visible abdomen and with two stains lateral egg whites, when seen of top, and blue-greenish thorax, with three black longitudinal strips.
3. designation common to numerous sarcofagídeos, particularly the species of the gender Sarcophaga, whose females are ovovivíparas.

[F. red.: blowfly; sin.: it searches. Pl.: fly-blowflies.] "

In this picture it was still trying my lenses close-up.
Your opinion is important!

Nojenta mesmo, eu detesto quando elas começam a rodear nossos churrascos. A macro está ótima. Boa foto.
Esses olhos das moscas impressionam a gente.

Pois é, José Reynaldo, a natureza é assim. Foto original, embora o assunto não seja dos mais bonitos - o que é forte razão para que a foto seja postada. Afinal, a natureza não é bonitinha, certinha e piedosa o tempo todo.

Como diriam, obrigado por postar.

uma macro toda colorida e cheia de detalhes tenho uma parecida ..... Fica bem Ana:)
