I know flies aren't popular, but I don't care! I love the face on view, they are so funny! Grin

Yellow Dung Flies spend their time around piles of dung (believe it or not!). They live on the flies that live on the dung. It's amazing to watch them hunting.

This is fantastic. Great macro work, obviously, but also a beautifuly composed, balanced picture. Perfect use of vertical. I'd hang this on my wall, even if it is a fly.

Very nice close up Karen. Anyone that hasn't tried this will not appreciate just how much skill is needed.
