I think flies are very interesting subject to photograph. I always wanted to get close to their head and see what face they have. Well, now I managed to get close enough to see their extraordinary eyes and facial hair.
-Flies are adapted for aerial movement, and typically have short and streamlined bodies.
-Flies have a mobile head with eyes and in most cases have large compound eyes on the sides of the head, with three small ocelli on the top. The antennae take a variety of forms, but are often short, which reduces drag while flying.
-Because no species of fly has teeth or any other organ or limb that
allows them to eat solid foods, flies consume only liquid food, and
their mouthparts and digestive tracts show various modifications for
Ok, enough for all that scientific language, here's my few photos of them:
These two fellas below was quite interesting, I was just starring around with my camera, and suddenly a big noise flew over my head, like monster fly or something, then I saw two flies in the air doing the "thing". After a few seconds, i think they decided that doing this "thing" in the air is just not comfortable at all, so they landed ant the leaf and continued. They actually didin't give a damn at all, because I was able to even touch and push them. All this parade was lasting about half an hour.
Other species of the flies is Episyrphus balteatus (Syrphidae). Well I just call them hover flies, becouse they can stay in one spot while in the air. They pretend to be bees or wasps to protect themselfs from predetors.
