pretty fly

A fishing fly (lure) which I bought at a car boot sale in the UK. Would you go for this if you were a trout? Canon EOS 350D, Tamron 70-300mm (300mm macro), f/20, 2.5 seconds, ISO 400, tripod. Lighting from two 10 watt halogen spotlights, one slightly behind the fly and one behind the camera, both above, dark blue tshirt for the background.

 

It would have been good to get a little stronger light on the eyes to make them stand out more... I learn a little every time.
