[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a stripped compound eyes of what i think is a Stomorhina lunata fly. The fly in this shot is very small may be about 3-5 mm in length. Initially i thought it was a Horsefly, but the shape of the eyes s not of the horsefly kind. Shot with my usual reversed 18-55 lens mounted on hollow extension tubes.

Very fine closeup, good details. tfs.

FANTASTIC MACRO..so colorful aren't they? Excellent POV and execution supreme!

Hi Nitin,
Awesome close-up and perfect POV!... If you want to avoid too much brightness, the most recommended would be to use a diffuser on the flash ... I use a simple piece of white paper in front of the flash and go! :)
