What a perfect picture! But what a disgusting creature! :-) Your work is great. Well done. Bravo.
It seems I'm first critiquer for you. I hope it will be lucky. Welcome to TN. Thanks.

Welcome to trek nature
Great first shot. Lovely colours and sharp. TFS (Thanks For Sharing)
Nice picture to start with, Phil!
The critter is a blowfly, Lucilia sp. (Calliphoridae). There's a link to the discussion on bubble blowing in flies, maybe you'd like to learn more about this phenomenon: http://www.diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=16&thread_id=1016
I would also suggest using smaller aperture/bigger f-stop number for better DOF.
P.S. Thanks for adding me to your Favorites, yet I'm afraid you'll discover that there's plenty of more experienced authors @ TN.
