Camera: Nikon D7100
Lens: Lensbaby Sweet 35 Optic

Inspired by the many great fly macro's here (thanks Roz) I wanted to give it a try as well. Used my lensbaby sweet 35 with 8+16 mm macro adapter ring. I had to get very close (few cm) but these flies kept on returning to the same spot so that was no problem, just had to be patient. In another try I made an attempt at focus stacking but I liked this shallow DOF much more.
