I found this maimed fly... he just sat around on my windowsill... so I got him to crawl onto a stick (carefully not touching him. eewww... ) and then put him onto the post-it note pad set up in my lighttent. He sat there for a while... and then he fell off... Stuck on a Post-It Note.

So, I shot him.

*grin* Several times. And then he walked off. It was weird.

It just so happened that at the same time I had a frog in my bathroom sink (doesn't everyone?) so, I put the fly in the sink with the frog and left. When I checked again, the fly was not to be seen. You decide what happened. I don't know.

I do wonder if the fact that I hit him with my sock was the reason he was just sitting on my window sill... *puzzled look on my face*

Thanks for adding the "how I did it". Now I'm thinking of the time a huge fly was buzzing around the windowsill, and I said to the cat: "Samantha, get that fly!" As if she understood me, she immediately swatted it with her paw, and ate the fly, in one motion.

This one is clearly Shoe-Horn to me. Excellent macro, with Post-it in the BG. I don't see much connection. Great macro nonetheleass.
