You never cease to amaze me how a simple fly on a leaf can look so stunning, excellent detail and wonderful colours, a splash of pink in the OOF background, pin sharp, just wonderful.
Cheers Rick :)

Dear neighbour of the day:)
Flies can repel, but when they come as stunning as they look up here, they can be dear little lives flitting around.Crisp shot of this fly, in great lighting and a beautiful composition.Good amount of details seen and very informative notes.

Hi Mr. Ram,
I am your neighbor today. A lovely capture of this beautiful flesh fly (but not so beautiful work that it does). Excellent composition and sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Again a perfect macro shot, in this instance displaying all the salient characteristics of a flesh fly, beginning with the eyes! Some may consider them to be vile creatures Ram, but a nature lover knows that they serve a serious duty clearing the environment from dead and putrefying animal matter. Seemingly less vile mosquitos also carry disease vectors but at least I haven't heard what role they play in nature beneficiary to mankind or to the living world, except maybe becoming food to some animals. Relating to the term "sarcos-Gr. sarko", up to now I thought it meant "flesh", we use the related terms "sarcolemma, sarcoplasma, sarcomere, sarcosome, etc." in relation to the "flesh building" striated muscle tissue, a "sarcophagus" does not consume a corpse as a whole, just "eats" the flesh out, leaving the bones, etc., back!

A flesh-flies habits are vile but the fly itself is amazing! I've never stopped loving those bright red eyes :-)
A great vibrent image.
Gorgeous colours and the warm light is excellent!
Very well composed and a decent POV.
Brilliant DOF that has rendered the BG completely blurred.
Well done Ram!

The finer details in this little creature is so well recorded!
The bright eyes make a fine colour contrast to the greenery, and the sharpness in the subject makes it stand out well on the surroundings...
Attractive, dynamic composition, fine colour palette!
