WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Surprise

Like many I was not surprised to wake and find we had survived the supposed apocalypse that was predicted because the ancient Mayan calendar had simply run out of time……I can confirm that the day passed peacefully, as usual in this little corner of the world.  What did surprise me was the very weird eyes on this strange fly I captured through my macro lens recently when seeking insects to photograph.  I have no idea what it is, it was tiny and was feeding on nectar in the centre of a rose.

  4. Stripy eyes! What an amazing picture. Just lovely and fantastic. The curls of the rose’s stamen (?) give it an extra dreamy quality.
