It is easy to forget how diverse and beautiful flies are when you are out bushwalking and being hounded by bush flies. The stunning blowfly in the Subfamily Rhininae had nestled itself into a rose flower to feed on the pollen. The rose petals provided natural diffusion of the light from the flash and really brought out the psychedelic colour of its eyes.
