Friday beautiful science

Today's Friday photo is a closeup shot of a housefly. It's a bit cliché, but it's a fantastic example of the head (and eye) of an insect. This photo, taken by Charles D. Krebs, won first place in 2005 at the Nikon Small World competition. You can see last year's winners live in person at a venue near you. How's that for an original date idea? Take your date to see some cool science pics.

The 2007 awards are being judged next week, but won't be announced until the fall.
