Mutant Fly Returns?
An image of Mount St. Helens with a fly on the lens.  Everyone just wants their picture taken with an active volcano!

The old VolcanoCam caught a fly on the lens and prompted emails from all over the world. The new VolcanoCam was not yet up a few days when this happened. Everyone just wants their picture taken with an active volcano!

In this image, taken at 8:24 am PDT, on September 28, 2004, the fly is visible in the top right-hand corner. We have it on good advice it really is a fly on the lens and it is not a gigantic fly causing the earthquakes within Mount St. Helens.
