The iridescent colors on the fly are most appealing. Great close up.
A lot nicer than Jeff Goldblum after his transformation.

PS -- wouldn't be surprised to see Lee swapping salt crystals for flies, now that the MP-E 65 has him itchy... Smile!

Thanks all! Jim, she sat dead still while I did a few handhelds, I then spent the next five minutes setting up the tripod, remote cable, mirror lock-up, the works. Was just about to trip the shutter for the first time, ZOOM... gone! I had gotten careless and exhaled on my subject.

Thanks Prad. No macro lens here, Don't own one yet. This is my humble 50mm f1.8 with a +2 and a +4 close-up filter attached.
I know the John Lega pic... another league altogether...
