[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Since I started taking photos of animals with my new camera a few months back, Iíve gained an even greater fascination and appreciation of wildlife. This is especially so when it comes to macro shots. I see even the most mundane creatures in a totally different light. This fly is a good example of that. Normally, itís something Iíd just ignore, or possibly swat, if it annoyed me :-). Now, I see it as something amazing; the hairs on its back that Iíve never seen before, the veins running through its iridescent wings, its compound eyes and other tiny details. Iíve seen plenty of photos like this before, but somehow seeing my own images just makes me appreciate these animals that little bit more. I canít really explain it. Iím hoping if youíre on this site too, youíll probably understand :-).

Hello Ian!
Very nice macro even if the object is not very colourful.
Bravo for non-commercial insect photo :)
