I don't care what is written about me as long as it isn't true.

Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.

Anything too stupid to be said is sung.

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies.

This is an unfortunate house fly. I had to kill it to photograph it (I stuck it in a freezer for an hour). It took a while to get the lighting right and the focus perfect. I don't have a macro lens so I out my standard zoom on reverse and that seemed to do the trick. Feedback is appreciated!

I didn't think of flies as unsusual or beautiful until I saw this picture! Was it just a regular housefly? What camera did you use that it could do a shot like that without a macro lense?
