Visiting friends up north on Vancouver Island, on their small farm after a rain, I managed to capture this fly on the wet leaves. The visual texture of the beaded up water on the very green leaves captivated me, but the fly I think is what makes the photo.

I am afraid that for me it doesn', it is too small to do that Peter. To use the fly as your main subject you would need to be a great deal closer then to emphasise it, place it on a junction of lines of thirds. What you have here is a picture of some leaves on which an incidental fly happened to land.
Your camera appears to have a macro setting so maybe use that in future and dependent upon the settings of the macro you might have a nice shot.

Well, you have a subject, but I fear it is way too small to be effective. That's v2. V1 has two subjects, an even smaller fly and something red. Sorry, not too keen on these. Not really sure what you are trying to show.
