Thank you, I do love this lens it's the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro and when it's combined with a set of extension tubes it can get some really great close ups :)

While the fly is in that position, it is much easier to shoo away, or kill, as it has it's front.. feet(?) up, he can't fly away so fast, as it has to lower it's legs first. It can't move them like humans can move their arms.
Detailed picture , I love it.

They still look like they're rubbing their forelegs together and ploitting the end of the world every time they groom themselves.

hmm... I'm finding that I don't think insect hair is very pretty up close. But their eyes are still pretty.

It's a nice photo, by the way. ^_^ ...I've tried some macro photography, but it seems like I can't get good enough shots with my little camera. :/ Even when I'm touching an insect with the lens, their eyes don't come out this clear.
