    Nice! Who would have thought a fly would be interesting to look at but the pics are great. What kind of set up did you use?

    Amazing close-up of the fly - excellent! Very sharp, nice backgrounds.

    Thanks - I'm glad you like it.

    I used Nikon 105mm macro + ring flash on D300, handheld.

    I don't think I would have had the patience to get these shots. Nice photos.

    Yours are much, much better, but with a D300, I can see why! Very nice.

    The camera has nothing to do with it. What did you use for your shot?

    great pictures, focus looks great in all of them. I personally do not particularly care for what the fly is sitting on in the 2nd and 3rd shots, for some reason i find it to be a little distracting.

    Out of curiousity what ring flash are you using? and would you recommend a ring flash for macro photography? (particularly for nature, bugs etc)
