    There are a lot of flies and they are not all the same. Here are three that you may come across. The blue bottle fly and the green bottle fly you may know. The other is Pararchytas decisus.

    I love the metallic green of the green bottle. They always look a bit otherworldly.

    A lot of flies and bugs are neat when you see them up close.
