[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have no idea what sort of fly this is, but after travelling for a couple of years I have finally dug my camera out of mothballs and got new batteries installed I have started to have a go at macro photography :)

This fly was happily sunning itself on a wood pile so became my first target.

It was in direct sunlight, filled with a ring flash, and obligingly turned side on for me. I was going to try out focus stacking on a head shot, but will now need another subject for that. Phil.
