Very cool, never realised their eyes were so hairy. I have thousands of these skulking on the leaves in the garden at the moment. Nice split eye colouration too!

Awesome work Laurie! I wanted to shoot studio stack of a Stratio, but it was very hairy, and the hairs was white-colored, and these were unfortunately overexposed.

very nice.
these flies' eyes are amazing, I took a picture of such a fly a year ago or so...and first I didn't know whether its eyes colors are the result of degradation or if the colors are natural... Cheers Bogdan
Great!!!!
really a great shot the light is perfect and the bristles between the ommatidia are spectacular

Very very nice shot. Hairs on the eyes are very detailed. How do you prepare your subjects, that they look this way on your pictures? Excellent work Laurie.
