When they're not buzzing in our ears or ruining our picnics, flies have lives of their own. Until now, their tiny world has remained completely unknown to humankind. In this engaging study, photographer Magnus Muhr carefully documents the world of the common housefly and reveals that when we re not around, flies behave pretty much like we do. Playing golf or soccer, sunbathing, partying, dating, singing, and even fly fishing anything s possible in the fascinating (if brief) Life of Fly. Featuring the best of Muhr s spooky yet surprisingly sweet creations, this macabre collection is sure to captivate humans like no fly has done before.

This volume contains the entire essay on Flies, or Diptera, from the Souvenirs Entomologiques, to which has been added and the purely autobiographical essays comprised in the Souvenirs. These essays, though they have no bearing upon The life of the Fly, are among the most interesting that Henri Fabre has written and will, we are persuaded, make a special appeal to the reader. The chapter entitled The Caddis worm has been included as following directly upon The Pond.Jean-Henri Fabre (1823-1915) is well known for his popularization of insect natural history, especially in the ten volumes of Souvenirs Entomoligiques. Although a reclusive amateur, with no scientific training, he was an acute observer of insect behavior. He combined his observations (most made in his own backyard) with a humanistic writing style that made his books popular, at least later in his life; during most of his life, the successive volumes of Souvenirs Entomologiques attracted only mild attention. Fabre was 84 when the last volume appeared, and soon afterward he was "discovered." He was elected to numerous scientific societies, provided a government pension, and even the President of France came to visit him.
Enter a hidden world of snail killers, silly names and crazy sex lives in The Secret Life of Flies. In The Secret Life of Flies entomologist Erica McAlister gets under the wings of these crucial creatures as she ventures into the land of the fly. From hungry herbivores and precocious pollinators to robber flies, danceflies and the much maligned mosquito, she describes the different types of fly, their unique and often unusual characteristics, and the unpredictable nature of their daily life. Erica travels from the drawers of wonder at the Natural History Museum, London to the mountains of Peru, via underground caves, smelly latrines and the English country garden. She discovers flies without wings, eyes on stalks, rotating genitalia and the terrible hairy fly, while pausing along the way to consider today's key issues of conservation, taxonomy, forensic entomology and climate change. Combining her deep knowledge and love of flies with a wonderful knack for storytelling, Erica McAlister allows us to peer - amazed and captivated - into the secret life of flies.
