One day in late summer, we were picking the matured figs at the back of our garden and our harvest was accompanied by louder-than-usual buzzing sounds. Around the overripe figs flew a lot of insects and landed on these already opened fruits: honey bees (Apis mellifera) and some fly species, such as the locust blowfly (Stomorhina lunata), the common European greenbottle (Lucilia sericata) and the common house fly (Musca domestica) were sharing with each other the abundant sources. It seemed that, everyone could get enough figs, and so could we. We were watching the diversity of insects around the fig tree for a little while, and then we ate some of the delicious figs.
