Caption: Fly larvae feeding on meat. The larvae are crawling around an eye socket-like structure on a piece of carrion. Fly larvae are known as maggots. Flies go through four life stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult. The eggs are laid near a food source, such as this meat. The larvae hatch from the eggs and feed on the meat, sometimes going through several additional stages (instars) before pupating to produce the adult winged form.
