This is the common fruitfly which swarm any food items left open, particularly fruits. The fly is very small, just about 1.5 to 2 millimeters length. Here, it is seen feasting on a piece of pumpkin.

its not a very clear picture raghu. Also did you crop a lot of it out, thereby reducing the size? Close up or macros are really tough but when done nicely it usually looks better than it does live. Remember to read up on techniques and keep trying

Yes, I agree, Seth, but this was the clearest of the 20+ shots of the fly I took. It is so small that it is very difficult to see on the lcd whether it is correctly focused. After that I had to do a little bit of rework. A good macro lens might have come in handy, I suppose.

BTW, I understand the name is Drosophila, not 'fila'. Any idea how to correct the caption?
