Peony III with fly

This could be a Snow Lotus Xue Lian or White Screen Reflects a Blue Jewel Bai Bi Lan Duan. Who knows.  But really I was going for the fly who was taking a moment to smell the peonies.  I love bug eyes.  So complex!  Below is a blown up version of the guy above.  Notice his compound eye, how large it is.  That's because it's not one large sphere but many, many tiny lens in spherical shape. I can't quite get the definition here.  But these large eyes have a wide range (360 degrees) and can detect and react very quickly to movement.  That's why it's so hard to swat a fly!!!!
