Nice.

We have some small flies very similar here, I've been trying to get a good shot all summer, nothing worth showing off though. if this one is about the same, ours here is about 3/8 inch long. I've tried it with and without the binocular lens setup, usually wind up either out of focus or lots of fringing from bright lighting... I'm glad somebody got a good shot of one.
