    Not as amazing as I wanted, but I wasn't feeling fantastic this morning and thus wasn't as steady as I needed to be.

    one of those green bottle things, hope you are feeling better now
  • David de Groot said:
    No idea Helen, it was only quite small so I presume it was a regular house-fly.

    As for feeling better, marginally (still throwing off this darn cold).

    such pretty colours on them...its just a pity they insist on being whacked with the fly swat...
  • David de Groot said:
    Quite so! At least from the back they're pretty. The head side is fairly ugly though.

    Ooh...such pretty green fly! I saw one last year but couldn't take a decent photo because of the sun and shaky hands.

    "insist on being whacked with the fly swat..." Nyahahaha! (o^^o)

    Shaky hands are definitely an issue with this macro stuff, that's for sure.
