"Drosophila melanogaster (Fruit fly) ":

Drosophila melanogaster original watercolor painting by Juan Bosco
11 by 8 inches (29x21cm)

Watercolor nº 1249:

Drosophila is a genus of small flies, belonging to the family Drosophilidae, whose members are often called "fruit flies" or (less frequently) pomace flies, vinegar flies, or wine flies, a reference to the characteristic of many species to linger around overripe or rotting fruit.
One species of Drosophila in particular, D. melanogaster, has been heavily used in research in genetics and is a common model organism in developmental biology.

Painted with high quality watercolors in a thick paper by Juan Bosco.
