Very cool shot and a great macro at that in regards to the detail. It's too bad the fly was dead (just a guess) when the photograph was taken because if it was alive the green eyes would have really popped out and captured the viewers attention. Guess they donít like to sit still too long for a macro shot like this ;-)

Not exactly pretty but an excellent macro image.

What an ugly looking thing!! Good capture and nicely focused (perhaps TOO well, in this case).
07/07/2005 01:14:16 AM
Holy cow that's detailed! Excellent!
07/06/2005 01:07:20 PM
how can it see through all that grunge on its eyes? nasty looking fellow, but well done. good focus and lighting. the lower right bit is distracting.
07/06/2005 04:18:32 AM
Quite ugly but good macro none the less.
07/05/2005 10:36:28 PM
His eyes seem surprising dirty to me, like his been dead for awhile. Focus is nice and crisp
07/05/2005 09:53:03 PM
Nice shot
07/05/2005 08:14:26 PM
Amazing macro. Shame about the noise artifacts. Rating highly anyway
07/05/2005 06:03:20 PM
one of the greatest macros ive ever seen.what kind of lens did u use?
07/05/2005 03:34:56 PM
I like the way you composed this and you did manage to get quite close. I gave you a good score but would have scored higher if this had really been pin sharp.

Good shot...a bit blurry, but overall good macro.

6 - Potential. For me, too dirty. Needs finer focus. Maybe a brighter background, or more of that which is there. Not sure if it is dead or not but, doesn't look too good.
07/04/2005 09:44:38 PM
Great Macro, but such an ugly, ugly face.
07/04/2005 02:09:58 PM
This is an excellent macro. Very nicely done! <9>
07/04/2005 01:39:49 PM
Incredible detail! Great macro.
07/04/2005 12:50:00 PM
wooooooooooow, one of the best, how did got it ????????????
07/04/2005 11:42:53 AM
He needs a bath. Good focus.
07/04/2005 09:14:12 AM
I tried this same shot but thought the dust on the eyes would give away the fly
was dead and might get marked down for it. I know how tough this shot was to
take so I'm scoring it high.
07/04/2005 03:29:01 AM
I know you! Nice shot...
07/04/2005 02:38:01 AM
wow, how'd you take this? 10
07/04/2005 02:09:28 AM
He does not look very healthy!
07/04/2005 01:14:19 AM
This is the most amazing ugly thing I've ever seen. WOW is all I can say.
07/04/2005 12:33:30 AM
put a swiffer mop on his head!
07/04/2005 12:24:43 AM
Dang if those things aren't ugly critters!
