A flick of it's wings...

By Paul_Iddon  
Just managed to trigger the shutter I'd imagine in the instant before this fly took off from the leaf it was sat on tonight - you can just see some movement beginning on its wings, but it still hasn't raised its back feet up yet in the take-off (flies always take off backwards).

So this is the instant that the process began of flying away... starts with a flick of the wings.
