Well here's one for Andrzej who requested dark Curacao blue in post #113. I know it's a bit light, but
Bluebottles are lousy Cocktail Waiters. Wink.

The first photo was taken at 15/04/2008 and shows a male Fannia canicularis bubble blowing at 8 pm during twilight in a flat. So, almost with no sunlight.
The second photo, taken today (15/12/2008), shows a Calliphora vicina bubble blowing at 10 am. The fly was basking in the sun and the temperature was around 10 ºC. Many flies, of different species, were doing this.

Hello, Rui!

Many flies, of different species, were doing this.


Yes, even very small ones like this < 2 mm Madiza glabra (Milichiidae). But I have also noticed it on some small bees, especially those who collect nectar in the stomach like the Hylaeus below. (Edit: But this is a male, so it should not collect it for the larvae...)

Found this little midge in the garden yesterday..first fly I've seen in weeks. Was in an awkward to get at spot so couldn't get a real close-up shot. Put it in the laptop to find it was blowing a bubble, very small.
