Thanks John ! Yes - I was so disappointed that the leaf just obscured it's mouth. So close yet so far.

Ash. - Yep, Tamron 90 and Yongnuo 560 speedlite.

John - they don't seem to think so - LoL !

I'm afraid this site's compression software has robbed them of some of the detail / sharpness on uploading - but if you feel so inclined then you can view them on my SmugMug account (see below).

I love these shots. And the fact that the flies head look like they are stitched together in the middle.

Thank you CT !

Thanks John - Ha ha - yes, they do look like they have been stitched up, some sort of Frankenfly.

Appreciate your comments Ronny !
