Sooo... like many other people on here, this is my first challenge.  I love photography and have been doing it for years.  Macro seems to be my favorite so, this is the perfect one for me to enter.

How I got the picture: Sadly, I hadn't done dishes since the day before (ew, right? lol) and I had our front door open.  A fly came in the house and I saw him on a dish when I had gone into the kitchen to get some water.  I ran to grab my camera, a Canon PowerShot SD600 which I am absolutely in love with, and followed it around the kitchen taking tons of pictures of it.  He was supprisingly cooperative and let me get a few good pictures before I decided to shoo him out of the house.

Now, with out boring you any further, I present my first Crafster challenge entry...... Mr. Fly.

That is awesome, yet slightly frightening... I'm not sure flies are MEANT to be blown up to such huge dimensions - this is going to give me nightmares for days!  Cheesy Great job

I don't think I'll ever look at a fly the same way again! Very cool!

It's incredibly detailed, you can see the hairs on his (her?) body!  Nice work.
