Thank you Tyler. They do that with the flash. This time I used a lamp and it worked.

Good shots - he's colorful little guy. It looks similar to a species I tried to photograph last summer. Every time my flash went off, the fly would jump into the air for a split second before landing back on the leaf. It was so fast I didn't even notice it with my bare eyes, but almost every picture I took had the fly in an acrobatic position, suspended in the air. Hoping to see them again this year. I almost forgot about it until I saw your pictures.
