Greenbottles and Bluebottles

The mild weather here in the midlands this autumn and winter has meant greater insect activity than would normally be expected. Only a few days ago I saw a Bluebottle fly and Greenbottles were also still around until fairly recently. These images are probably my last insect images to be taken this year.

Although I don't think either of these species would win any popularity contests, the Greenbottles in particular are actually quite attractive close-up. Or maybe it's just me...!
