Rainbow Fly

I made good use of my macro lens to capture this image. I was walking along a forest path when I glanced over to a leaf where I noticed this fly. From a distance it seemed like nothing special, certainly not colorful in any way. But as I carefully moved in closer with my macro lens to the flying insect, brilliant details and rainbow colors were revealed. The fly was perhaps a quarter of an inch long, but seen up close many details and patterns emerged photonatureblog.com/2014/06/15/color-at-a-macro-level/
