The Fly and I

                                                                                                                                                                                                             This may seem like an ordinary fly, but it is very important to me.  Why you ask.   Because his photo is the first sharp close up of an insect that I have ever been able to take. 
I see beautiful pictures of butterflys , dragon flys and many others on various blogs, but I have never been able to achieve this feat until today. I was so excited that I decided  to mark this special day by posting "Fred the Fly's " photo.  Fred was a great model as you can see.

That is an amazing picture. You must have a great camera! His eye looks so neat, and you can even see the detail in his wings. I never thought I'd like a picture of a fly so much! :)

That is an outstand piece of photography. M says she doesn't know how you do it.

Well done, Cherie! I personally cannot abide flies, but this chap chose to off-set my inner loathing by perching on a beautiful red rose and so I'm able to tolerate his artistic presence...for now!
