No, I smoked the Sisha. I was fairly often in Egypt and every evening I enjoyed the green apple taste tobacco!
Those were very nice people. They prepared me a hugh lunch, killed chicked, made big salads. I was a bit worried about getting some kind infection, but everything was just fine.
The young lad on the right, you see him from behind, is the son of the "owner" of the village, where I did some collecting, which was difficult with many children running behind you. This boy was working as a chemist in a powder coating plant, customer of Ferro Holland, my employer at that time.

I found it, indeed, in the office of the managing director of Coatech. I noticed it on the window in a very dirty, industrial area. Pseudoleria pectinata!

It was one of the last really interesting flies, which I collected; since that time I was totally occupied with my job in chemical industry (unfortunately)

Hi dear Dipterists
I have recently changed my job, and moved to Shirakami Natural Science Park, Hirosaki University (Aomori, JAPAN). Shirakami (or Shiragami) Mountain area is one of the World Natural Heritage site of UNESCO, situated about 600Km north of Tokyo. COLD, FREEZING.

Hi,

Even my office is more tidy. At least, you have a fine huge screen.

Larry: Somehow I knew you might look that way... But donít worry, that is no dishonour! The only fact that makes me nervous is: you belong to the octopedes, and these normally are not just platonic lovers of our two-winged darlings, no: they eat them!!! So to avert danger from the forum (viz. depletion in photo objects) please make sure that you approach our sweeties with your camera pressed tightly to your mouth and warn them by flashlight so that they can take refuge immediately after the shot!
(Btw, little Katie seems to have photographed another Larry with much less legs...)

Katka: Please try uploading your photo again (donít forget: no spaces in the file name!), I really want to see our Queen of Lauxaniids!

Andrzej: Do you know the species name of the lovely Irises, is it I. sibirica? It seems I have them in my garden, too.

To contribute another photo to the second part of our portraitsí thread, here is one that shows our current favourite pastime: insect photography!

Best wishes to all true fly lovers, irrespective of their leg numbers,
Claudia (Sundew)

Ah not to worry. Although I have pet tarantulas they usually eat crickets, moths or mealworms, rarely do they eat the Diptera Wink
