I am literally spoilt for choice of flies. Any way, here's a few more from the land down under. Only three here but the other five here: A Plethora of Flies

Beautiful images!

I'm curious about the title, though. Is it tongue-in-cheek, or did you mean "plethora" instead of "dearth"?

Yes, the old brain of an Aussie would be an interesting specimen to forensic science. Being reversed to the norm. :)

Thanks Rik.

Amazing photos Mark. They're not my favourite creatures, but they are pretty spectacular in their own unique way.

On the subject of brains, I assume some brains could be pickled specimens in the interests of science. :D

Well, I was middle-aged before I got around to looking up what those words really meant.

Then I discovered that my brain held a dearth of wisdom and a plethora of trivia. :roll:

After that, keeping them straight was easy...

High-impact images, in which the harmony between subject and background colours plays a major role.

Cheers guys.

As you see Sam, brains come in all sorts. Polite, gentlemanly, colourful, humorous, astringent? Saintly, anyone? :lol:
