nice color, nice detail, well framed - looks like the fly is lurching towards the viewer, you almost want to pull back.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 09:24:01 PM
I have to admit that I never thought a fly would make such a superb model for a photograph. Definetly one of the stand out macros that I have seen at dpc

WOW, this is by far the best macro shot yet as I make my way through the voting. Stunning. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 04:32:46 PM
Uh, a broken leg? You can't have everything :) There's too much light on the subject instead of the background: The edges are washed out. The main part, the head, is well lit, that's what's most important. 7.

Great macro. I remember this from earlier in the year. The detail is excellent. He almost has a bigger than life sense with the great close up. 9

01/16/2006 07:08:29 PM
I think I would like this more if I could see the whole thing. Perhaps angling down a bit more. Not sure though. Nice shot otherwise.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 06:08:23 PM
Every time I see this I still can't get over the detail. It just doesn't look real, like a movie prop or something. Amazingly well done!

Photogenic little fellow, isn't he? :-) Very nice work.
