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.

Extensions in uppercase are (and were) accepted for gif, jpg, jpeg and png

09.05.21 16:01
OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

06.05.21 22:31
FTAO - Gordon; Please make sure that you use lower case, because attachments with extensions in upper case (capitals) are rejected. So sayeth GOD AKA Paul. Cool

06.05.21 21:40
A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

06.05.21 06:50
OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.

I know I have been away a long time - but why can't I load a 63Kb file called Fly01a
