    Alright people, Kate and I are having another blazing row and once again have decided to throw the vote open to you, the forum dwellers.

    In an otherwise innocuous conversation about insect photography, Kate happened to mention offhand that Bluebottles were her favourite fly. I naturally scoffed at this remark, declaring the Flesh Fly to be a far superior winged beast, what with its satanic red eyes and handsome grey and white patterned abdomen.

    Before I knew it she was branding them "homogay" and "****" and other such needless insults. I quipped that actually it was surely the Bluebottle that was gay, what with it's spangly metallic bluegreen bodysuit.

    Instead of chortling to herself and admitting defeat, the row escalated and now it's coming to bloodshed.

    So once and for all, OcUK, which of these two is Lord Of The Flies?

    What's cool about the Bluebottle. It's homogay. It's all fat and stubby and looks like it's headbutted a brick wall.
    It is the BMW 318 Compact to the Flesh Flys BMW 740 when it comes to proportions.

    I think the flesh fly looks meaner. And bigger too, although that's probably just the photos.

    I rekon that the flesh fly looks cooler just because the eyes are brighter red.

    Almost two-tone skin, and he looks like he's wearing shades.

    Bluebottle for me, that flesh one looks like a flying multicoloured maggot.

    The bluebottle looks funky with a metallic sort of sheen but I'd have to say the fleshfly looks generally harder and cooler, in a dust-up I know where my money is going.

    Bluebottle here for the same reasons as Otacon, but they'd both get swatted if they got too close.

    I vote bluebottle but now I think I should have voted flesh fly.


    A blue bottle flew into the fly zapper at work today it was great, you could see all the blue bolts of lightening zoom across it and flames and it stank. It took around 30 seconds to go it was damn near invincible. It was sort of like The Return Of The Jedi where Luke gets fried by The Emporer! :D

    Neither, use drosophila :p

    But... I think it'd be nice to have a blue sheen, which you'd only get with a bluebottle
