Do flies have hair?

Why yes, yes they do.  I found this out today when I took a picture of a fly that kept hanging around on the window.  R kept trying to kill him :(.  I felt kinda bad.  She broke one of his legs off.  Anyway here he is before the torture ensued.  I'm just thrilled I got it to focus on him and not everything else outside the window. 

So I'm posting the original and the edited version.  There are only slight changes but I thought I'd make a note of them anyway.


I rotated the original, increased the highlights a lot, the shadows a little, saturated it a bit, and sharpened it a bit and got this.


Please click on the photo to make it larger to be able to see the differences.

This is really cool, Amanda! Really nice photoshop effects.

Thanks Matt but actually I used Picasa. Photoshop = expensive; Me = not willing to spend that much.
