fly collection
2

My son is socking some sunflower seed heads in a bucket of water.  It is making the flies happy.

yellow flesh fly

I think this one is in the blowfly group

ant mimic fly

Stable fly?

Blow fly

another ant mimic fly

Unless you see the sun flash off their wings as they flick them about,  you may never see them.  They mimic very small ants.

Blow flies

An absolute mystery.  Have never seen anything like it anywhere.

It stayed up on the sides of the bucket/tub and never got down in the muck.

I don't know why it was there but I will try to find out what it is.  It is a fly for sure.

Re: fly collection

Thanks for the replies.

I only noticed after posting that I had hit the wrong key and spelled socking rather than soaking.

The best bit about it all was that I didn't have to move to get all the pictures.
