A Grey-Striped fly on a twig!
Wish I could get my macro's to look that good.....sharp and stunning......Mike
It was a windy day yesterday, and this was the only insect that was still enough to shoot! Flies are great insects to practice macro on as they will sit still and will let you get very close if you're careful. They have amazing architecture up close.
the flies in south florida would have moved along time ago WOW!!!!!!!! great shot !! *jealous*XD
great shots, what lense are you using?
Once again, you've done a great job snapping a fly up close! Cool looking creatures.
That's one thing Australian flies don't do well....fly away.
Hi, I use a 105 mm Micro-Nikkor f/2.8. This photo has been cropped some, but the lens does give beautiful sharp images.
Thanks, flies do have amazing architecture up close!
im guessing that my 50mm 1.8 isnt a good lense for macro. does a great job with portraits.
Throw a few extension tubes before the lens and you can get good results. The key to macro is flash I think, a well diffused flash delivered close to the subject.
