He's looking right at you!
Gives a nice shot showing how shallow the depth of field is too
Hallo Fly, give me your hand so I can shake it!
Well, this photo wants me to do this and looks as if it is possible even.
How did you make it stop and stare?
When I took the reversed_lens_macros of the green fly last year, my daughter knocked it a bit unconscious for me to give me the time I needed to focus on it... (she put it into her rounded, hollow hands and clapped, so the fly was never harmed but dazed by the sound, we assume - it later rose and flew away).
Excellent. How sharp the picture is? Hope you did it with an VR lens. Anyhow, thanks for sharing.
I was very lucky. The fly was sitting on the railing on my patio, and it was just staring at me all the time. I slowly moved towards it, inch by inch. It actually at one point took off, and came back and landed in the same spot. And still, it kept looking at me. So I managed to get even closer and I snapped the shot.
The lens I used was a Canon macro lens, EF 100mm. I need more practice tho. My hands are still little shakey. The picture of the fly was actually my very first macro shot
They're really scary looking. It's like they are from an entirely different universe.
I really like ah... I dont know if theres a techy term but... both sides of the fly are in focus as well. Creating a ring around the railing.
I like it.
Thanx for letting us see something we dont get to see everyday.
Nice shot, the angle and dof make it interesting.
Thank you very much guys!
