Fly feast

DAY 135 (18 AUGUST) – Canadian goldenrod (Solidago canadensis)(Farnham)

Been feeling quite itchy ever since I took these pictures. This Canadian goldenrod, growing wild beside a path today, seems to be so popular with flies. I haven’t managed to identify them, but I’m struck by their red eyes and multi-coloured metallic bodies.

Canadian goldenrod fact: In Fukushima, Japan, it has colonised the rice fields which are temporarily abandoned since the nuclear power plant disaster in 2011.
