By Malin: One morning in August I came in to the office to find a plastic fly waiting on my desk. A few days later and a total of three flies had landed on my desk, sometimes rearranging themselves during the night. Curious as to their origin I questioned my main suspects and eyes of the corridor, but with little success. The flies where calm for some time while I moved offices, but as I finished up moving this morning I suddenly found two new flies, not on the desk but hiding bellow it. So the mystery of the flies goes on. I am eagerly waiting to see just how many flies will find their way to my desk. As for the five flies with known whereabouts, they have taken place on top of my computer screen overseeing my work (I'm assuming happily).
The hoverfly vision group can be found at 2 locations: At Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia, and at Uppsala University in Sweden. To find out more about us and our research, browse through the pages.
