I finally saw a fly bubbleblowing today. This fly (I think it's Mesembrina meridiana) was sitting for at least 15 minutes really being busy doing nothing but holding it's bubble "in the wind". Well, it wasn't windy at all, the fly was sitting on the sunny side of a leaf but in the shade of another (leaf). It never moved a muscle! Temp. about 16 C. Almost no wind and a bit of on-and-off sun.
