And PLEASE, do observe the Rules! It's so frustrating to disqualify some good image, just because its autor forgets to remember...

Took this 3:1 macro shot a few days ago. A fly was resting in a towel surface. It was actually a lucky shot since it flew away as soon as I was finished taking the shot. However, it would've been nicer if I captured the shot shortly before it took off, just like a macro action shot, haha.
