What is this? What is this?

Are these all pictures of the same fly?
In which case they should be linked. You can do this after the fact by tagging them all and then clicking on "link" under the thumbnails that appear on the right, but by far the easiest way is to upload the first in the series then use the "add image" function to load the rest - that way the info all stays the same in your submission page.

I have linked these for you.

I commented in one of your other shots on the fungus (I think) on this guy.

I went back out and they appear to be dead... Any idea about what took place?

A parasitic fungus killed the fly and the fungus is now releasing spores... search under fungus for more info.

Oops! Are there more than one shown here? Maybe I linked them too hastily?
