Actually, the wood surface behind the fly is in focus so it looks like the camera focused on that rather than the fly. Here's how to fix that: If you have a "macro" setting on your camera try using that, as well as the "point" or "center" focus setting rather than the "multi-beam" focus. If that doesn't help (or if you already did that), then try moving the camera a little farther away from the fly. I ran into the same problem when I tried to take close-ups. Even using the above settings I had to position the camera a little over a foot away from the fly to get a clear photo. Hope this helps!
