Extreme Macro Photograph – The Fly

True flies are insects of the order Diptera, the name being derived from the Greek di = two, and ptera = wings. Insects of this order use only a single pair of wings to fly, the hindwings being reduced to club-like balancing organs known as halteres.

Diptera is a large order containing an estimated 1,000,000 species.
