The sharpness is amazing , this is what macro is all about , according to me sharpness is one of the most important factor for a macro as lets the viewer see what he cant see or perceive through his eyes . Well done

Hi Bill,this is the best way to create a fantastic spectacle starting from a simple house fly! What a point of view and what a impressives details,this is a very professional macro whit magnificent metallic colors too,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hi Bill,
You show here that. although we are no fans of the common housefly, it is a beautiful insect. I fully agree with Goutham above about the sharpness. What I also often look for in a macro is adequate DOF and here I am not looking for more and I am not looking for more detail either. It is all there and it is a fabulous image. Amazing that it sat still for you for long enough. Well done and best wishes.

Great macro Bill! Wonderful lighting and impressive sharpness!
