Caption

Oriental fruit fly (Bactrocera dorsalis) laying its eggs in the skin of a papaya fruit (Carica papaya). The fly is using its egg-laying structure (the ovipositor, lower left) at the rear of its abdomen, to pierce the papaya skin and insert the eggs. After hatching, the fly larva will feed on the fruit as they develop into flies.
