Male March Fly (Bibionidae) that flies in the Fall (go figure). Length 8mm.
Flies are pure dust magnets; eye was cleaned under a 'scope and must have picked up dust between 'scope and camera.
I shoot everything in Adobe RGB, didn't appreciate that this bug is simply black.
Eye photo with x10 microscope objective on bellows; 33 exposurse @0.02mm; about a 40% crop of full frame (of antenna, head, part of thorax).

EDIT: title changed

Now I really like that in mono! Makes it look almost like something from the millitary!

Ah,i can't see that much detail as I'm viewing the pics on my cell phone,unless i download and zoom in. That said, although technically it is an RGB image it is also very monochromatic,like photographing trees in the snow in winter.

Wow, I like the eye shot very much. It somehow a little bit different from some of the other pictures it is almost touchable.
