Common green bottle fly

The common green bottle fly (Lucilia sericata) is a common blow-fly found in most areas of the world, and the most well-known of the numerous green bottle fly species. It is 10-14 mm long, slightly larger than a housefly, and has brilliant, metallic, blue-green or golden colouration with black markings. It has black bristle-like hair and three cross-grooves on the thorax. The wings are clear with light brown veins, and the legs and antennae are black. The larvae of the fly are also used for maggot therapy.

Salut Septimiu
Foarte clara pentru un compact, deasemenea culorile sunt frumoase, se observa putin zgomot de imagine, iar florile de liliac distrag putin atentia. Per ansamblu o fotografie buna.
Numai bine.
