Caption: Macrophotograph of a female bluebottle fly Calliphora erythrocephala, laying her eggs on the surface of a piece of raw beefsteak left exposed in the kitchen. The eggs are laid on the meat to ensure a plentiful supply of food for the larvae, which eat only decaying meat or vegetables. Magnification: x1.8 at 35mm size.
