    High up vs up high

    Hello!
    Is there any difference between 'high up' and 'up high'?
    Context:
    The fly is buzzing noisily up high.

    Welcome to the forum, korsar.

    Neither version makes a natural sentence.

    What prompted you to ask?

    How would you say if the fly was buzzing high in a natural way? (for example, you are in a big room with high ceilings and the fly is really high)
