Not normally a blue-bottle fan, but that is a great picture. Muddy, are we talking about a Venus fly trap or something similar ?

Yes Tuesdaybear, the North American Pitcher Plant.

Tsk... Look how beautiful he is...his back reflecting the clouds as if a mirror! Have you lot no poetry in your soul ?

8 Jul, 2012

 

Pp , can't really get poetic about a bluebottle , although the colours are rare .
He must have been getting on a bit as he stayed still for his portrait .

8 Jul, 2012

 

He was busy doing unmentionable things on Pims cotinus.... :/

8 Jul, 2012

 

Lol!

Anyone got a rolled up newspaper?

9 Jul, 2012

 

Lol gattina. :-)

9 Jul, 2012

 

I've got some flypaper you can use.

9 Jul, 2012

 

what about those blue lights they have it the butchers that ZAPPS! them! :o)

9 Jul, 2012

 

Well if they are in the house, then yes..but outside doing no harm....!? After all it's not a wasp.

9 Jul, 2012

 

Aww pimp your so kind... apart from in the house-its ok to cause them a horrible death then! lol

9 Jul, 2012

 

We've got one of those blue light zappy things - it doesn't do anything at all except hypnotise the cats. We've got flypapers, newspapers, sprays, etc., etc.. They all work MUCH better, but it ruins the decor, smacking things.

9 Jul, 2012

 

Lol, yeah especially when your partner hits one on the wall and doesnt clean the squidy mess up!- "but you'd do a better job love!" he says, then i hit him with the newspaper! lol

9 Jul, 2012

 

That's what newspapers were invented for. :o)
