This photo taken while very light rain was falling. This little fly sat for quite awhile blowing bubbles.
Previously I thought bubble blowing had something to possibly do with cooling,
but the day was cool so why flies blow bubbles remains a mystery to me.

Moved from Muscoidea.

Probably Anthomyiidae
