    Nice pic. Although I don't think I needed to see a fly that close. :)

    Wow, nice pic. And the fly's hairs are... messed up. I will never kill a fly again with my hands.

    The hairs are what seems to be worst here - ugh.
    But I like how your macro brings out the eyes, for example. Wow. Great clarity. Very crisp. I like this (not the fly as such, though).

    Amazing! It's interesting seeing the fly's eyes! You notice the grip-pattern on them that allows for sight all around. I'm genuinely grossed out! :lol: Great picture!
