Freaky Flyers

Some creatures around the house.
This bugger was enamored with my green onion. So much so that my camera didn't seem to bother him for an entire minute.

I was closing my car door when I noticed these two monsters copulating on the roof. They made a fierce buzzing sound when I got the camera out. But they didn't stop. Of course, after taking this picture I got in my car and drove off, so I'm not certain if they got to finish.

I'm no expert on fly genetalia(there's a sentence I bet you thought you'd never read) but, if these flies are built like fruit flies then the male's penis is actually covered in spikes and barbs designed to prevent the female from getting away during sex. So don't worry, I'm sure they finished.
