Fly on the wall

The first indoor fly of the year. He was still lethargic, since I've turned off the heat, so he stayed put while I climbed on a chair and reached up, camera in one hand, slave flash in the other, balancing shakily on tiptoes. I got two photos before he turned and ambled off, out of my reach.

I love his outfit: blue-striped jacket with black beads, and a steam-punk hat. (Click on photo for full-size view.)


  1. magnificent picture. Love the iridescent sheen

  2. I love the iridescent wings. - Margy

  3. lovely little thing! May I use this image to accompany one wee poem on my blog?

    1. Of course you can! Just remember to link back to the blog post, please. :)

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
