An excellent macro on this Blue Bottle Fly. Great frame filling composition shows great detail in the fly. Spot on exposure shows excellent colors .Nice work!

WEll, Joey, if you continue like this, we will soon see the inside of their mouths! ;-)) I am stunned by the macro you just did, it's incredibly close and sharp. What details! Love is afraid of flies, I should show him this one! Thanks again, you are becoming more and more professional,

The eyes almost appear as golden in colour....and the intricate design is quite apparent..I often wonder why..but my guess is that if we could see down even lower macro, we would be amazed at fractals...and then fuzzy logic takes over from there...which assumes all things are interconnected and there are no delineations between what you are and what you see....but your pretty darn close!:-)

Well done, Joe.
The big eyes are both sharp...
And the blurred areas make sense.

Now DOF is simply amazing. TC is used with macro lens amazingly. Details is extreme. Bravo. All is great. Fill flash is spot on. However, how you could use so long exposure time? My best wishes and TFS.

Another stunning macro Joe.
Having you tried layering macro images for DOF ?
I've seen it done very effectively on some macros on Flickr.
Theres a guy who uses a Lumix FZ8 like mine, with a Raynox DCR150 + a Raynox DCR250 both attached at once.
He gets some amazing deep field macros by layering 2 or 3 images.
You'd need a pretty patient subject though I'd say.
