That Eye

By ChiliMan
Hey, people Smile

OkÖnot much of a shadow here but I just had to share with you this interesting fly/bee-type thing that was at my brotherís place. Weird eye, huh??

Iím (ab)using the fact that there actually is a shadow in here to upload this today Grin

I thought it looks pretty ok straight out the cam so I decided to just crop it.

Brilliiant detail in this close up Andrew, the eye is amazing and I like the small shadow. I think he must be a London Wasps fan as he is wearing yellow and black!Grin

Very impressive macro shot with super detail on the compound eye, something that I have tried to achieve for years but never managed (the buggers never stay still enough!)
