Darren, Isn't life great;-) Are they practicing safesex ?
Great detail and sharpness in this shot.
Greetings, Jan

L'AMOUR TOUJOURS! A real pleasure to see such a sharp, detailed, colorful photo, but also with a real story behind! Is it on your kitchen table? If yes, they've really choosen the right tablecloth to enhance their exercise. I love it!

Good capture of flies hard at it. Lovely detail and DOF.

The capture is very good Darren
You know for sure they are no pets, because pets are not allowed. No, little joke, very good details in this shot, good work

Excelente... desde el título.
Gran nitidez y detallismo, excelente colores y lo único reprochable es el fondo, aunque siendo este tipo de bichos, todo ámbito es normal para ellos.
Bien hecho.

Excellent... from the title.
Great clearness and attention to detail, excellent colors and only the reproachable thing are the bottom, although being this type of tiny beasts, all scope is normal for them.
Well done.

Excellent and very sharp capture.
Lovely colours and perfect DoF.
Horrible subjects but a great photo!
Very well done.

Great capture of these two, whether or not they're playing it safe ;-)
Your choice of F-22 worked really well here, all details are within DOF range, even though they're at a slight angle.

Darren, this is absolutely fantastic. The metalic shine almost make them seem like robots. The details are super sharp. This is a masterpiece.

Great title, and an incredible macro view of a fly's world - and on the kitchen table! The detail is spectacular. Well done.

Darren, qué buena fotografía. Ese zoom a las moscas, permitiéndote tomarlas así sin que huyeran, perfecto.
Muy buena fotografía, excelente composición y nitidez.
