Flies and an update (Two Photographs)

A few weeks back I spoke about the devastating storm on September 27th that was concentrated in the reserve I frequent most. We passed by the reserve a few times  hoping it would re-open and then suddenly without notice it had. The devastation in one part of the park was truly amazing and awful. Tops blown off trees, old trees just toppled over like bowling pins. It will take some time before that part of the park heals. I am grateful the park managers cleaned it up enough so we could enjoy the end of the season. As for the photos I know outside of entomologists few people like flies, and I have varied views but I do hate it when they land in my composition and force me to re-think my photo :).

  3. Flies do have a purpose and while it is a bit distasteful, they help clean up a lot of rotten garbage and flesh. Ewww… 😉

    • Indeed, still awful. Amazing though that they are often more interesting than many other insects to look at.

  4. Flies can be as fascinating a subject as any other insect, and they have just as important a job as anything else in the ecosystem! Great pictures. 🙂
