It's a bugs life

By Neeka  
Evening all. I know....I can tell you are totally shocked!! Apologies for not being around.

This photo is of a blue bottle fly. I don't know what happened to its other eye.....I think it got lost in the shadow. Who thought a blue bottle fly could look quite so pretty?

My camera died today!!! It is shooting in psychedelic purple!!!! Seems like the optical sensor has gone. Tongue

Sorry to hear about your camera. I chased a fly around the garden today but nothing as good as yours to show for it

Sweet shot. I can see the other eye, there's a mixture of shadow, similar tones and and angle at work but the eye is there. Good to see you uploading again, hope you get the camera sorted.

Very nice detailed image. Maybe he is a one-eyed bug. You mean you're back and now your camera has packed it in! That doesn't seem fair at all. How awful for you............Sandy

Hiya Neeks, long time no see.

Well, you seem to have successfully got rid of the purple cast.

Nice to see you back.
