Context would help us here! I'll give it a try. If I "fly in someone's face", I am angry, shouting, perhaps getting close to the person, waving arms.....get the idea? I'll be interested to see what others may add.

For me, to fly in the face (of convention or tradition) is to act in an unexpected and perhaps provocative way.
