    These flies always crack me up the way they wobble around with their wings spread out.

    WOW.

    How do you do that?
    I don't mean the equipment but how do you manage to have the time to set up and then take multiple (or even a single) shot of insects?

    Thanks Steve. As for setup...no setup really...they're all handheld so the only setup is getting in the right position. All about the timing I guess....only actually spent maybe 4-5 minutes with this guy.

    That is one weird critter right there. Almost looks like a false wasp.

    Flys are odd subjects. Sometimes they are really skiddish and other times they will let you get right up on them.

    Amazing.
    I would have thought it was some kind of controlled environment.
    Love your sit BTW.
