Welcome to the group. Your photos can be taken on any day of the week, but must be posted on Friday to be in the group. Flies must be in the order Diptera (True Flies).
Group DescriptionEvery Friday, we post flies from around the world. We accept any fly in order Diptera (True Flies), like house flies, robber flies, mosquitoes, etc.. Take a look around, there are many more flies in your neighborhood than you think.
There are many insects with Fly in their common name that are not True Flies such as caddisfly, mayfly, stonefly, etc. We aren't a really strict group, but if you make a mistake, someone will probably let you know. I have got it wrong once or twice myself. Really obvious mistakes like bees, butterflies, and dragonflies will be removed. If you make the occasional mistake with a non Diptera insect we may keep that in the group as an educational example for other members who may not know.
This group was started after reached the end of his 100 Days of Flies series. Urtica mentioned the idea of Friday Fly Day as a way to continue the fly series and have others join in.
