    Hi.

    I went this morning to a local pond to shoot shoot some dragonflies but I couldn't find even one. One the way back I saw this fly on my car so I took few shots.

    Very nice, both detail and composition, although you may want to crop a little more on the left, to make it equal with the right. I like the reflection!
    What camera and lens is this taken with?

    Thanks for looking. Here is my setup:

    Nikon D80
    105mm 2.8 macro (Nikon)
    F13
    1/200
    Macro flash

    I have one question - do you guys think shotting macro in RAW will make the photo quality better?

    Thanks

    I personally have always used jpeg but I think Raw is better if you plan on editing the photo. I find jpeg good though, but again, I havent shot in RAW so I'm not sure.
