September 4

This photo is simultaniously amazing and gross.  This fly had the good fortune to rest on the kitchen table flowers while I was eating breakfast this morning.  The lighting was perfect, so rather than reaching for the flyswatter, I got my camera instead.   I've seen macro photos of bugs where you can see all the eye lenses, but this was the best my filter could get.  I am happy that I caught it with its tongue out though. And I have to admit, the little buggie eyes got to me; I don't think I'll be able to pick up the flyswatter today.  Especially after it was such an accommodating model!  Tomorrow, however, is a new day...
