Some shots of Calliphora sp. showing the colour range from colourless to dark coffee.
Had an interesting comment left on a flickr photo of this behaviour-
"Regurgitating aerates the semi-digested food and helps in oxidation processes. Speeds up digestion"
Hadn't considered aeration as a possibility.

What about a wasp (Polistes dominulus) heating up its meal?

This Green Lacewing was photographed in the middle of the night at Scatsta Airport on 29/07/08.
Not much sun about at 00.21 even in Shetland in July, so the heating-up of the bubble theory can be discounted I think.

This little fly blew a bubble but couldn't swallow it again, so left it on the leaf. Sorry for poor picture quality....pre proper Macro Lense.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
