Getting close to insects is tricky business, there is a lot of luck involved. I have to say that I am not very happy with the photo quality of my shots displayed here so far. They seem to look flat and not very sharp. On my home monitor these images look vibrant and sharp. I wonder why. What I am seeing here of my shots has barely I Phone quality.

Yeah, good try, but 100mm is barely enough for something like a fly. Also, you kind of have to take the shot such that its eyes are in focus. But cool metallic fly

Thanks for Your thoughts. Sometimes You have to use what You got (100mm). I did not plan this shot and as I stated above, this photo is tack sharp on my monitor ( developed in 'Lightroom') but looks dull and lifeless on this display site.

The iridescent quality of the fly shows up nicely. I am not fond of flies in whatever form but I like it on the leaf with the purple background.

Yes, Flies look quite pretty on macro images and they are not easy to get close to with a camera. I like insect shots generally.
