Green Bottle Fly

Ya learn something every day by taking pictures of flowers. I thought that a fly is a fly, but it seems that the Green Bottle Fly is important in forensic science in determining the length of time since death and in medicine by removing necrotic tissue in wounds. Not only that, the Green Bottle Fly is an important pollinator (seen here doing that duty), as when they can’t find carrion, they feed off nectar and pollen!
