[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Drosophila melanogaster is a species of Diptera, or the order of flies, in the family Drosophilidae. The species is known generally as the common fruit fly or vinegar fly. Starting with Charles W. Woodworth's proposal of the use of this species as a model organism, D. melanogaster continues to be widely used for biological research in studies of genetics, physiology, microbial pathogenesis and life history evolution. It is typically used because it is an animal species that is easy to care for, breeds quickly, and lays many eggs.
Flies belonging to the family Tephritidae are also called fruit flies, which can lead to confusion, especially in Australia and South Africa, where the term fruit fly refers to members of the Tephritidae that are economic pests in fruit production, such as Ceratitis capitata, the Mediterranean fruit fly or "Medfly".

Hi Foozi
Amazing colour and detail in this photo. Super technique. What I really like is you POV and your DOV. The BG colour and the effect on the wings is wild.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

Hello Foozi,
Most species of fruit fly are quite tiny, which makes this frontal view macro even more remarkable. The sharpness and natural colours are top so that the details of this fruit fly are well seen.
Great work and thanks for sharing it.

Hello Foozi,
This fruit fly looks quite ugly...and you have taken the shot from an ideal low point of view, showing so well this little monster looking down on us... very well composed and a typical powerful composition. Kind regards

Hello Foozi,
a splendid macro with great sharpness and colour.
good PoV also.
best wishes,

Salam Foozi.
super awesome capture with nice pov exposing the details brilliantly. Top class macro and thanks for sharing.

Hi Foozi,
This is a breathtaking portrait of a fruit fly, taken from an excellent PoV. I also like the composition very much, and strangely, your oversaturated colors also work well (at least to me). Remarkable photo. Bravo.
Best regards, László
