The better to see you with

I'm pretty pleased with this: a fly on a bouncing leaf on a windy hillside.

Focus stack, three photos.

What I liked were those amazing eyes.

Last photo, as I came closer. Then he flew away.

Each eye is composed of 3,000 to 6,000 simple eyes. (How Stuff Works)

And I never had noticed before that they have antennae on their antennae.


Esto me gustó. Una mosca en una hoja bailando en el viento. Lo que me llama la atención son esos ojos maravillosos.

Cada ojo grande contiene de 3 a 6 mil ojitos simples. Y además hay otros tres en medio, pero tan pequeños que no los puedo hallar.

Y nunca me había dado cuenta antes que las moscas tienen antenas en las antenas.

I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

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!
