House Fly on Marram, Podering!
This is quite possibly Helina reverio, one of many flies belonging to an arbitary group known as 'House Flies'. These flies are grouped from different families purely on the basis that they typically occur and are influenced by mans constructions/behaviour. In this case this fly was found on Marram grass growing in the Sefton dunes near Altcar. I particularly like the compostion and negative space, off-set by the angled blades of Marram. It struck me that if a fly could ponder its life and place in the universe, it might look something like this. Taken with my Pentax K3 and Pentax 100mm macro lens, f7.1, 1/125 sec, ISO 400 usinr a monopod.
