    Photos of a "filth fly", genus Muscina . These flies are found worldwide, commonly hanging around livestock facilities, restrooms, outhouses, cadavers; hence the rather unfortunate common name of filth fly...

    Photographed with an Olympus OM-D EM-5, 60mm Zuiko macro lens, and flash. I don't remember if I used the FL36 or the ring flash.

    Cheers,
