Great macro!! What lens did you use? Was it on a tripod?
Thanks for looking Hobo,, this was shot with a Canon 40D and a Sigma 105mm Macro lens handheld
Wow. Very great capture.
someone had mentioned on another sight that they wanyed tighter and more vertical,, which do you prefer ? I tend to like the original backround bokeh, while I do like the tighter shot too,,
I think I light the tighter shot.
Nice shot, man. Robberfly, known for "robbing" other flying insects (such as common flies and butterflies) out of the air. Then piercing their bodies with their mouth parts. Harmless to humans, except if aggrevated to an excessive point. Not like the Horsefly or Dobsonfly which bite when the opportunity arises. Horseflies evolve from a larva of a maggot, and the Dobsonfly evloves from the Hellgramite found in ponds and streams.
Nice capture of this mis-understood species.
Very nice shot.. and yeas, that is one creepy looking thing
