I pulled out my camera and "shot" a fly
It was dead anyway, stop the hue and cry!
It's all for art! You call it a crime?
Oh! What would I not do for a photo sublime
I need another, the last was too small
It's compound eyes will be it's downfall
It's better to be ugly and a creepy crawly
Otherwise you'll be dead, but famous! Oh! What Irony!!

A friend of mine was weirded out at my delight on hearing he had a 'zap-zap' at home. :(
And unfortunately dead bugs aren't as clean as live bugs, so you can see dust specs all over his eyes. I got one almost twice as magnified, but I liked the colors on this one.
