Housefly (5:1) - frontal, Heesch, Netherlands A few extreme macro shots of a housefly. This is a species where I have no emotional issue at all with sacrificing one for the sake of a photo. They are nasty creatures, multiply like crazy around trash and are a constant pest both inside and outside the house. <br />

The housefly , ''Musca domestica'', is a fly of the suborder Cyclorrhapha. It is believed to have evolved in the Cenozoic era, possibly in the Middle East, and has spread all over the world. It is the most common fly species found in habitations. Adult insects are grey to black with four dark longitudinal lines on the thorax, slightly hairy bodies and a single pair of membranous wings. They have red eyes, and the slightly larger female has these set further apart than the male.
