when this challenge was announced the first thing I thought of was flies ..

ppl often say how much they hate them and find them annoying and dirty ..

"Perhaps most compelling is the direct role they have in our lives. Although few of us realise it, without flies and other decomposers we'd be up to our eyeballs in poo and dead bodies. 'Their larvae are cleaning up after us and the adults are pollinating for us."


here's some interesting information about flies .. :)
Five reasons flies are awesome (despite being really annoying)

I like the crispness of this photo with everything in focus. I also like the hairs of the fly and the leaf that kind if go together. It also meets the subject well.

So ... you're saying flies are underrated, yes? :-) Winner of the best / longest title thus far (still have 8 entries to get to). LOL Nice photo, as usual.

they are useful in cleaning. I believe they are doing it while disturbing others. I thing I know some of them..
