I spy with my beady eyes!

Apologies to those who are not insect fans, but I am fascinated by the detail that you see through a macro that is otherwise not visible to the naked eye! I've wanted to get a decent shot of a fly for a while now and this little fella obliged beautifully while basking in the sun this afternoon. Really needs to be viewed large if you can bear to!

Update 3/9/13 - this little fella got me to PP. Thank you everyone who helped it get there, your favs and comments are always appreciated. Thank you! X
