Hairy Maggot Blowfly

What a terrible name even if it is true. They are actually reasonably attractive flies.
In trying to identify it, I discovered that you can tell the gender by the eye position. Today’s fund fact: The males eyes meet on top of the head while the females are seperated.

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
