Excellent save, I'd say ;-)) Focus spot on, good DOF and POV. Compared to the original you've really worked wonders on this one.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the dance flies again, as they captivate my imagination. I read once - somewhere on the net - that the males will hunt for prey and then hang in the air in groups waiting for a likely-looking female to pass by. When one arrives, she'll seek out the male with the best prey, and while she has a good time devouring the prey, *he* has a good time with her. Now, a mate with an imagination almost as vivid and naughty as mine made a remark about that which suddenly made me see in my mind's eye this scenario (the selection process, mainly) transferred into the human world... ;-)))

Robert, So this is a new category of near misses? What do you call this? A near save?
;-)) Great P.P. notes, thanx. P.S. Does it do the jig too!!

I like near-misses category - post one of mine tomorrow. Your picture shows us how good software and good artist can save the picture.

There is not a lot missing on this shot, I think just a better colours balance, or better light.

I'd be happy with this quality shot Rob. This is no near miss, it is good. Well done

I can just imagine the males hanging around armed with hamburgers and fries waiting for Miss. Right to show up. :)
Exceptional capture and save you got here, Robert. This fly is tack sharp and well composed. Impressive details shown. Very well done on the great shot!
