Title Physiphora clausa
Creator Jean and Fred
Description Physiphora clausa - Picture-winged Flies We have quite a few of these flies around at the moment. The colours on them is really pretty, with iridescent green or moroon thorax and abdomen. The eyes are patterned. This male had been mating and was ready for more. They are so funny to watch. They sit and wave their front legs in the air, sometimes one at a time, sometimes both. They almost look like they do play offs, where one will wave his legs, then the next one starts. Yesterday they were chasing each other in circles and mating.
