Caption: Rear end of a green bottle fly, close-up. Part of the wings are visible, and the rear legs are being used to groom the wings, the abdomen, and the legs. Flies engage in extensive and fastidious cleaning and grooming behaviours. These routines remove physical and chemical detritus, as well as bacterial films, and helps clear their smell and other sensory receptors.
