I captured these mating flies in the backyard this afternoon. After snapping a few pix, they would fly away, still attached to each other and land in a new spot. I"m not sure which spot I liked best ,so I am posting Mating Flies (1), (2), & (3). Which one do you like best ?

    Freaky! I’m glad they’re not that big for real, or I might have found a new use for the tennis racquet.
    Great detail!
