The botfly is a "true fly" that is, they belong to the order Diptera, which means, "with two wings." While all the other billions of insects are flying around with four wings, flies have only two, and a "balancer" that gives them the remarkable agility to avoid fly swatters and such. With a microscope objective we can closely observe its head covered with small drops of water that adhere to its abundant hairs.
