The housefly - musca domestica, sunbathes on a raspberry leaf.

The house fly -   ( musca domestica)  is the most common of all domestic flies, and the most widely distributed of all insects. It can carry serious diseases, has one pair of wings, and the female is slightly larger than the male.  Houseflies are  believed to have evolved some  65 million years  ago  and probably owe their  worldwide dispersal to co-migration with humans.
