Martin's fly at Chadwick

Quick post before work. I posted Martin's fly on Facebook and Graham Wakeys has got back very quickly and said it's an Entomophthora sp and the fungus actively alters the flies behaviour and makes it climb to a high point and pose in this unusual way before killing it, sounds so alien like and amazing sight. Also Mr Hogan has changed the name of Shapwick and from this day on it will be known as Chadwick, it was great to see him yesterday and eat his chocoate when we could get it off Phil who loves it more.
