Roger caught this little freaky dude in our house.
We tossed it into the fridge for a while to calm the fly down.
And then we took it into the garage and let it slowly crawl around a pencil while I snapped some macro shots.
I had the camera settings all wrong, but I still managed to capture a bit of the essence of oddness of this fly.
Even still, the hexagonal grid of black spots on a yellow background of Dude Fly’s Eyes caught me by surprise at full scale in Aperture.
Nature rules. Roger let the fly go. A few minutes on his warm hand in the direct sun outside and Dude Fly was fully back into superfly mode.
Make sure the damned ISO is at 100 or 200 (400 is noisy at low light on a Rebel XT). I hate it when I forget to reset it.
Try the make controller + external flash.
Get around to building a light box.
