Now that is one in-your-face fly photo! Excellent job on the details. Were you using extension tubes for this? It's an amazing close up!

Hey Thomas, very cool micro. The DOF must be really tiny at this magnification and seems like you did well to get a lot in focus.

Very nice sharpness and DOF at this magnification, Thomas. The patterns in the compound eyes really pop. Well done.
