Although they make me think of filth...


...I can't help but love everything about these compound-eyed, sticky-footed, regurgitating, long haired, maggot creating insects.

Fascinating to see this little pesky insect so up close. Loved how you described it!!

So many of them end up on the swat!

They are everything you say they are and you've photographed the dirty little creature beautifully.
Look at those eyes!
Excellent macros!

Ugh! I'd prefer not to think on these things. LOL Rather, I'll focus on how beautifully you captured those red eyes!
