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!!!!
