    Good photo, beautifully focussed. They certainly look fierce in macro.

    Good choice for the challenge! Love the focus, color and lighting. Not a fan of the central position of the subject. (Brought back unpleasant memories of the movie The Fly, with Jeff Goldblum)

    Great macro shot but doesn't very strongly suggest the phobia. Could just as well be taken as an interesting nature study.

    Excellent shot; great detail and lighting. There really isn't a good thing you can say about them, is there?

    Wow! The sharpness is there. Good job. I never did like flies but after seeing this shot, I now hate them.

    Excellent shot. I don't fear flies but I'm very aware of the diseases that they spread. I had one walk across a Petri dish once and saw what grew from each footstep after a couple of days. Love to know how you get one to stay in the right position.
