The Photography 101 topic for today asks participants to explore the concept of big, either by showing something really big, a part of something really big, or making something small very big. I will, of course, always choose the latter! I found a fly crawling around on a metal pipe in my house last night and got some shots of it. This is my favorite:
It really highlights the bizarre mouthpart of some flies, the strange sponging device that they use to regurgitate onto their food and suck up the resulting mess. This pipe was apparently rather dirty (nothing like a really close up macro photo to highlight the dust and grime you never noticed!), so the fly spent several minutes wandering around and slurping up dog hair and whatever else is on this surface. Gonna clean that off with some cleaner ASAP!
