This is a small fly (~4mm long, head certainly <1mm wide) with lovely rainbow eyes. Not sure if this is a small one of the 'long legged' flies, and I doubt anyone can confirm from the portrait!



Stack of around 120 images with Nikon 10x objective on OM bellows at around 1/3 extension. Stacked in Tufuse with one sub-stack for the left antenna. The right antenna was at a very dodgy angle and I do not have it in focus at all..

Possibly due to the slight crop causing a squarish ratio on the image I had to use quite a bit of jpeg compression to squeeze this under 200kb. (Possibly also something to do with the colour/complexity of the eyes on this lady!)

Here's a 100% crop from the right eye:

It looks great! Very Happy
Seems that "Tufuse" is doing superb job.
Maybe some part of your setup is reflecting in certain pieces of compound eye? Think

Apart from the strangely "missing" antenna on the right, it's a great capture!!

MacroLuv is right though, I can definitely see the end of your lens reflecting off the 100% crop of the compound eye, perhaps even yourself.
