Improved Fly Fossil Image

This image shows an insect fossil (some sort of fly?) found in the Florissant Formation of Teller County, Colorado, USA. It dates to the Eocene Epoch (56-33.9 million years ago) of the Paleogene Period. Thanks to Kenny for the microscope image. Field of view on image is 5 mm.

He has been working on stitching images together of the same fossil thus allow higher detailed images.  Older image below:
