Not bigger than a few millimeters and still very scary!

I'm experimenting macro photography. I took this pic a few days ago.

The above photo has been shot with the Samsung Smart Camera NX20,
which has been provided to me by Samsung Electronics. Co., Ltd.

So I thought this photo deserved a critique. Because this photo Wow'ed me when I saw it in my mailbox. The wonderful percision, sharpness and colors are just incredible.
The hairs, the structure of the eyes and the floor are so precise that you could enlarge this picture a thousand times and still have a realistic photo. Like a giant fly ready to eat mankind.
Furthermore the blur enlarges the perspective of the photo and therefore the impact of the photo.
I can't say you outdone yourself because your art is already too amazing to say so, but I sure am jaleous of your equipment :floating:
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

The eyes are incredible. It's like looking into some kind of crazy mesh, like what they put on speakers and such.

I Think, that if you decrease the contrast of the area of the surface on which the fly is standing, that is in focus, there would be a clearer direction of attention and less distraction. Not that there is much distraction, the little things you know. (:
Otherwise the small depth of field looks and works well in this photo.
