Bonkers! At it like there's no tomorrow!

By Paul_Iddon  
Scuttle flies, apparantly...

They may well only have short lives, so perhaps tomorrow is very important...

Anyway, these two very very very small flies were at it hammer and tongs. He was literally shoving her all around the leaf and she didn't have much chance of getting a grip to stop him!

Size wise? If you are typing on a standard keyboard, each fly is about the size of the minus sign on the numeric keypad on the right! About 1mm, a fraction bigger at best!

You'll appreciate, even with extension tubes, that this is a large crop... and I couldn't get it any sharper without spoiling it.
