Excellent Macro and details. Like the title, very suited for this shot. Those big red eyes are really something. Well done.

Hi Nicolas
This fly made me think of Queen's hit song "Fat-Bottomed Girls", but with a slight twist, "Yellow-Bottomed Fat Fly". I just wonder what will Fernando Alonso say when he sees that he is being compared with a 'house fly', but I think your title was rather original. Funny though how I was also reminded of the F1 fraternity when I critiqued a photo of Chi Liu way back in March 2006 which you can see here just for the sake of interest.
I like your narrow crow for the composition of this up-close macro shot, the colours are vivid, the details are very sharp, the BG is absolutely great, and the exposure was spot-on. Great use of the fill-in flash.
Very good work and TFS.

Hola Nicolas,
Una macro perfecta: gran nitidez, máximo detalle, un color muy bonito y una profundidad de campo ajustadísima, que forman una composición muy atractiva.
Buen trabajo,
José M.

Hi Nicolas,
I alway thought Alonso is blue and yellow?!?
And that he has so red eyes? - Of course sometimes he has, when Michael Schumacher is faster that he - that he looks red - so we say in Germany - rot sehen, that's when you don't like something. - But I like your shot, a wonderful fly, so sharp and with pretty colours. Today's the day of the fly, I also have one here ;-) So thanks and bye

Hi Nicolas,
Awesome shot with very good detail and excellent DOF and POV. I particularly like the exposure and the well blurred BG that gives emphasis to the sharpness of the subject.

PS - What about Pedrosa - I gather he is 'fatter' than Alonso
Keep it up and long live motor racing
