Post BSF photo gallery
Feel free to submit any high quality photos of BSF, their larvae or eggs. If the thread becomes too big we may have to cull some of the lesser quality images. If you upload them here we will assume you don't mind if we also host them on the main blog: Blog BSF Gallery

Captions on submissions used on the blog photo gallery can contain links to your homepage, YouTube channel, etc. Please let us know which you would prefer.

I guess I can understand how people panic when they see that for the first time. :)

Oh Wow! 22 clusters in one trap! The flies must be having a late summer splurge.
This was a single trap hanging over a bucket of soggy cabbage.
As Tarvus says, every year gets easier and easier. :)

This first photo is wonderful, but the fly was cleaning his head and the first pair of legs are up! hahaha
Probably it is a female (look the white dense color of egg mass inside her.

My BSF (they are wild ones) either have green or brown abdomens. Green being the most common color.
This occurs in both male and female, and I was wondering if anyone could give an explanation? If you look at Agropisa's photo's here you can see the same thing.
