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.

except when you enlarge it it looks terrible :( . . . I didn't realize that or I wouldn't have posted it. :( I have more but they will be for macro Monday! :)

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.
