Winner of science photo competition: eyeglasses on a fly

Boingboing features a very nice picture of a fly wearing eyeglasses. And since it is easier to copy than to write you own below follows a copy of the boingboing article:

National Geographic has a photo of a housefly wearing miniature eyeglasses, which had been “crafted and set in place with a cutting-edge laser technique. The glasses fit snuggly on the fly’s 0.08-inch-wid head.”

The article doesn’t say whether or not the glasses improved the fly’s vision (or whether or not the fly had vision problems to begin with), but they do look rather snazzy.
