From your title I take it that the fly was your interest so I would suggest something like this is what you should be aiming for. Whatever you got focus exactly where we expect as viewers it to be, very nice indeed.
Then you would have something like what Grahame [Stagecoach] showed us recently. He also suggested that going in close was not always the best solution and if you have enough pixel it is worth staying a little back and cropping for the tight framing ... doing this increases the depth of field one has when close to subject, usually pretty minimal.
In posting your editor stripped off the EXIF data so we cannot see what camera you were using but there are two basic approaches ... the use of extension tubes when the lens can be separated from the camera, preferably a tube which maintains control linkages between lens and camera, and close-up lens for those with fixed lens cameras where the CU lens overcomes the usual problem of the long end of a zoom not being able to focus that close and one uses the narrow angle of the telephonto lens to achieve the tight framing fom a moderate distance.
