Finally I got one of these green mettalic diptera with patience for my shoots

f/11 | 1/125s | iso 100 | FEC +1/3
Canon T1i with Canon MP-E 65mm @ 5x.
580 EX II flash bracket mounted with a LumiQuest Mini SoftBox diffuser near the lens and silver bounce at right.

Hi gmazza,

are those cataracts or early onset myopia I see? lol. You continue to impress with these incredible close-ups and this is no exception.

Would I like a 10X20 foot print above my bed ? Probably not, but you sure produce some wondrous pictures :-)

Cheers!

Lol ! Thanks for the comment, not sure about the "dead pixels" in the compound eye, it was dry at the time of photo, so could be cataracts or just pigment changes.

Thank you

This is a focus stack of two frames, the defective omantidia remain constant :-k
