Photograph by Mervin Pearce, National Geographic Your Shot

A robber fly saved from a pool rests on the tip of a bottlebrush flower in Boksburg, South Africa. Using post-processing software, Your Shot member Mervin Pearce created a composite image consisting of multiple shots of the fly stacked on top of each other.
