Blow flies on a Stapelia grandiflora flower

Blow flies on a Stapelia grandiflora flower

My 1st macro photo with over 500 000 views on Flickr: “Blow flies pollinating a Stapelia grandiflora flower” from Calitzdorp in the Little Karoo, Western Cape, South Africa.

The flies are being tricked by the flower, and their maggot eggs won’t survive as the flower will die soon (and the flower is not really a suitable host or food for the maggots).
