F is for Fly

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like the ant, I like the scale of this one.

The Delhi Sands flower-loving fly is the only fly on the federal endangered species list. Recent counts have yielded no more than two dozen of the flies at any time, and their best hope of survival is pinned on prime breeding habitat in Colton, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles. But that Prime habitat is considered prime real estate by Colton officials. The clash between man and fly over these acres has become so heated that many favouring development say the only solution is to allow the fly to become extinct.
