Shoo fly!

I had initially planned to use this photo for Macro Monday, but then...

Chelsea over at Yellow House had a photo challenge this week.
This week's theme is "Your Best Shot."
I wouldn't say that this is the best shot I've ever taken in my whole entire life, 
but this is the best shot that I took today, 
so why not enter it?

And while I'm at it...
I'll double up and use it on Macro Monday as well.

Because....
I'm pretty sure that's my reflection on his back
And I think it's pretty funny.
How's that for a self-portrait?!  :)


By the way, Chelsea... thanks for the mention and the awards.
I'll take all four!  :)

Yes, that's a great photo and the thought of using a fly for a self-portrait is kind of weird.
