Was there for my usual shoot, and FORGOT to charge my batteries.....AND also my spare also!!!! But still manage to squeeze out 148 shots out of my camera by switching batteries and on and off...., anyway, these are the fly shots....

#1: Side profile

#2 Frontal view
this pic used the technique here (trying out the concept):
described by M. Plonsky (cut a sharp head and paste on the sharp body)

#3: A bit wider view

Between #2 and #3, which you prefer? Thanks!

Set up: FZ10+Nikon 6T+ Sigma CU, Ext flash, F8, ISO 50, various shutter speed

Between 2 and 3, I vote for #2...
all nice shots...
quite clear.

All three are good. I find #2 to be the most balanced of the three. Considering the size of a fly, these are truly extraordinary macros.

Thnks for the comments! For #2, I did use some techniques as I described in my re-edited post of pic#2...hence the better DOF...
