my wife capture this house fly, and came up with an ingenious way of keeping it in one place whilst keeping it temporarily alive.....must be the Russian in her.

anyway, pics weve all seena million times before, but it was great to do it myself.

Did you used ECA to make the eyes this red? :lol:
i'm not sure what ECA is :D

the only processing was exposure correction (for the fly). no sharpening. and curves to blow the highlights. place on white frame.

cheers viktor. :thumbup:

like a fly paper?
no, but a good idea actually :p

you see, i've been struggling the last few days. i can of course catch the bugs, but to keep the damn things still is a PITA. hats off to the pros who manage it.
