    I was standing in the bathroom when a fruit-fly landed on the mirror adjacent to me. I immediately noticed that it presented a double image that would not be seen when looking straight into the mirror. Wondering if I could catch the image I grabbed the camera with the 12-40 lens, not wanting to switch lenses to something more appropriate for fear the fly would be gone by the time I got back.

    The lens would not auto focus on the tiny subject so I switched to manual focus but the fly was walking up the mirror & I missed the shot. Did you know fruit-flies can walk fast? My second attempt was more successful before it flew off.

    This is a very highly cropped shot.

    Nice grab. I'm sure there's a joke in there about I'd like to be a fly on a bathroom wall. But I'll leave it to everyone's imagination. :)

    I thought I was becoming obsessed with photography until I read this. Am I reading this correctly, you take your camera to the bathroom with you?:aiwebs_016:

    That was my first thought. I've been carrying the camera with me about 75% of the time. This takes it to a whole 'nother level. Lol.
