I caught a fly blowing a bubble recently and recalled seeing some similar pictures here before. I thought I'd collect all the pictures I could find here into one place along with a link to another site discussing the behavior. There doesn't seem to be a forum topic about bubble blowing yet, or my search skills have failed me.
If anybody finds more pictures or interesting discussions or speculation, add a reply. One question I have -- is this behavior limited to certain families of flies?
