I noticed this fly sitting on one of the last Queen Anne's Lace flowers we have remaining, and I thought, "If this fly allows me to get close enough, it could be the star of Macro Monday on my blog for a week." Well, I lucked out, because it was a very cooperative model. In fact, after photographing it for a while, I walked away to go explore other areas, and when I came back, this Bot Fly was still sitting on the same flower.
based on the shape it is in (especially the wings).
However, I appreciated it posing for some macro portraits.
"Here's my side view. Do you like the spikes on my butt? Cool huh?"
"How bout my nose? Some people thing big noses aren't cool - Mine is WAY cool!"
"Now, for the head shot. I really am sexy, right?"
Yes, Dear Bot Fly, you are sexy. Work if for the camera, Baby!
Yes, although it had been through some tough times, this Bot Fly was a great model. No need for the best fat burners for this critter - It's got it going on! hehe
