Very good detail on the fly and the rose. Nice colours and composition. I will still definitely prefer the rose though.

A lovely capture of this beautiful blow fly. A nice composition with beautiful red BG. Very good details and a nice POV. Thanks a lot for sharing.

A good overhead view of this fly clinging to the edge of a pretty rose petal.
Even if you don't like flies, you have to admit that their irridescent coats are very attractive. He must have some sense, to choose a rose on which to spend his time!

Reminds me of "Annie"...would she like velvet or lace or both...or satin that's it...you have given about as much stature to the fly as any one person could do..Now if you only had a product to hawk with it...it would make a standout advert! It has that classic Tiffanys's look to it...or Diamonds by Taylor you know what I mean...perhaps a fine scotch whiskey...crazy how many things can come to mind from this image..beauty and the beast...oh...I'll go on forever!

I expect this fly fancied the scent of this beautiful red rose! You've zoomed in very nicely on the fly showing the fine metallic colours and details very clearly. The rose looks nice and velvety, soft to land on I suppose! ;-)
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hey Janice, this is a beautiful shot, I just love the colour, its so vibrant!!! I'm not a great fan of flys but it does add to the contrast and adds a point of interest and difference.

This is really a vivid contrast in colour Janice.
The details of the fly stand out well on the red.Quite artistic, this is.

What a plush way of presenting a Green Bottle,
You've placed this fly on the red carpet, so to speak and not only show him from a fine POV with excellent sharpness but raised his status!
TFS this unsual image,

This common blow fly looks fabulous on red Janice, nice details/colors..
Nicely composed - Very well done :)
This fly is somehow familiar to me...
It's a marvellous picture, and the fly and the rose contrast so nicely. I also like the colours very much and appreciate the instructive notes.

Very arty image with fly as main subject. Or maybe Red Sea is main subject here? Anyway - very good saturated reds and rather tired shinning fly. Nice combination my friend! I can only add that word 'pupa' in Polish children language means a** :-)

It's an unusual image - the red is so intense that it almost makes me cry :-) Very nice composition with two contrasting colours. Some noise visible, so using NeatImage or something similar would help. Otherwise an appealing presentation.
Best greetings & TFS!
