Interesting. Great video.
And I will take a much closer look at any fly landing on me from now on :D

Interestingly, just 1 hour ago I saw this footage on tv (National Geographic, series Bite me) here in Hungary. I think the original footage was filmed by BBC and Attenborough, however.

The scene is from BBCs "Life in the undergrowth", I recommend getting the dvd.

I will spend a couple of days hunting the amazing looking Sheep Botfly (Oestrus ovis) this summer, I have no big hopes though.
Maybe I'll come home with oral mucosa myiasis :o
