Excellent shot Bock. It's always best to try to shoot these guys when they are pre-occupied (feeding, cleaning, copulating) as they pay a lot less interest to the lense poking them in the eye !

Ditto, great shot. Another good time is when they are dying. Get them when they can't fly anymore but still have life in their eyes.

Great shot Bock, yo where not sharing but paying it.

@John - " still have life in their eyes" - how the heck do you see that.

Not with the naked eye but it'll show up in a shot like this. When dead a fly's eyes don't have any sparkle. I can post an example if you want.

Good one, Bock.
when they pose for you like this, makes sharing a lot easier.

So is he drinking off the edge of your cup, or just sticking his "tongue" out at you?
Great photo with wonderful detail!
