My contribution to the excellent fly portraiture found on this forum. The fly, Calliphora sp., somehow got its two front feet trapped in a contraction of the milkweed flower bud. I took advantage of this mishap for the fly to get my images. The metallic sheen for which these Diptera are known is nicely documented in image 4.
