Two types of fruit flies - Zaprionus indianus

Two types of fruit flies - Zaprionus indianus
Punta Gorda, Charlotte County, Florida, USA
October 23, 2011
Size: 3mm
Recent rains caused explosive growth on some of my oranges and they split. This attracted two types of flies who quickly started on them. The redeyes actually dig well into the orange and the striped wing one seemed to stick to the surface.
