Default Diamond Eye

I was fiddling with my Raynox, and could not really get a clean shot of this fruitfly, and hence decided to use the flash and was surprised to get this reflection on its eyes:

Thank you, Simon and Jim. I have been trying to test another shot, but haven't seen those flies again.
