I've been trying to get a half decent photograph of a horsefly for over a year. I couldn't believe my luck when this lady Deer fly showed up in my house! I set her free in the garden and she stayed around for a while for me to get a shot of her. 6 images, hand held focus stack. background colour from a flower.

LOOK AT THOSE EYES!

Detailed and quite engaging. You gave it life even as a photograph. The background and the vibrant colour on the eyes makes it pop out as if its right there in front of me. I can even touch it. Ha ha ha . Great work, you didnt wait for that long in vain
