[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A blow flies, family: Calliphoridae
This is a large group of flies, and its members are often common and abundant. Most species are as large as the house fly and some are larger. Many are metallic bluish or gree. Larvae are generally scavengers, living in carrion, dung, and similar materiels; most maggots one finds in the body of dead animal are blow fly larvae. Larvae usually feed on dead tissue, but a few, such as screw-worm, Cochliomyia hominivorax, may attack living tissue.

Hi Sebastian,
Nice shot. The head and thorax are very sharp and detailed. Good color with an interesting POV and framing. Difficult to expose right with this light & shadow, but you managed well :)
Well done and TFS!
