Thankyou all for your kind remarks.

A few dimensions.
The scale of the sensor size to the size of a single full- frame (A5) print works out at 1:6.33.
(Sensor= 23.7 x 15.7, the print is 150 x 99.5, scale of print to life-size = 1:6.33.)

This applied to some measurements on the print of the fly's features gives life-size dimensions of:

Length of tongue, 0.66mm.

Height of the eye, 1.02mm.

Gap between eyes, 0.62mm.

Width, overall of eyes, 1.75mm.

Thanks for the interest shown,

Roger.
The more I look, the more there is to see!

Flies are both horrible and fascinating at the same time. This photo demonstrates both aspects. They are so utterly alien despite being commonplace.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Are there any microscopic heights left for you to scale, Roger?

As they say in The House of Commons - "The eyes have it!"
