a fly in the morning after the dew .. insects are very sluggish in the early morning ... that's the time to photograph the fast ones . !!
simple process .. shadow & highlight because he was black, did lucisart on fly, then levels adjustment layer .. border-nik efex ..

This is soooo cool!. Love how you've extended the grass stems beyond the background... really adds to its 3D feeling.

Great job on the processing. Thanks for the info on the insects being sluggish in the morning, I didn't know that!

Guess this fly was being camera shy, only willing to give you his backside. Nice capture for a rude fly.

Nice job. Like the framing too. Maybe should have add a little EC?

A great take on such a mundane subject. Great color and contrast. How could a fly be exiting?
