A unique macro shot that works really well. Eye popping yellow color really grabs your attention. Then you see this head on shot of the fly that is very sharp. Great control on the DOF that has a nice fall off.
Excellent notes complete this outstanding shot.

Belle composition et joli contraste.
Félicitation et merci!
Very well done with that yellow BG.
I've had a look at your website too and I think it rocks. I'll find soon more time to browse it toroughly and enjoy it.

It's wonderful to be eye to eye with your fly!
Amazing shot and this yellow BG make this shot unusual and unique!
Excellent work Mike. Very well composed and a very good POV in this head shot. Very good sharpness, detail and DOF. The yellow petals make the fly stand out and contrasts nicely while adding good interest. I did a workshop just to see what it would look like turned-down a notch.
Very well done & Merry Christmas!

Very nice macro Chris! Housefly isn't maybe beautifull ;-) but with this yellow flower BG it looks great. Detailed, sharp, with good note. I like it.

absolutely spot on macro and tube technique..your details read f10 which i take was required for the flash distance...
i know my macro does f32...but then you get power problems with too much flash source.
its a wonderful shot with a fully documented note

Great shot that gets attention, the colour makes the subject pop out of the pic almost. Maybe slightly less exposure for the yellows, yellow petals often fool the automatic.
