Caption: Bluebottle (Calliphora vicina) on a leaf. This common blowfly feeds on rotting animal and vegetable matter. It is considered a domestic pest as it often spreads bacteria onto food. And is used as a key indicator species in forensic science where it is used to determine the time of death. Photographed in Dorset, UK, in autumn.
