Cluster Fly

Cluster Fly

Photo Information
Recently I took a picture of a cluster fly and popped it on here, it was suggested that the fly had a dodgy wing.
I took this in my rockery the other day, this one looks like it to has been in the wars. I'm guessing it's a cluster fly, same as the other.
I wonder if this one is the same as the previous fly I took the other day.
It sort of crawled away very fast when it had had enough of posing.

Good capture Paul, I wonder if it fly's in circles like a bird with a clipped wing does.

Nice detail and colour.

Another good shot Paul, it looks to be oozing some sort of body fluid where the damaged wing joins the body,maybe it has been in the wars!!!
