    this is great Yolanda, just look at those beady eyes and the droplet is nice too :)

  • Thanks Jenny, flies are definitely not easy to photograph, especially without a fast and/or macro lens :-)

    He looks so small, Very beautiful close-up!

  • Thanks Ellen, this fly was tiny and I was amazed I was able to get so close to it. More fly and grasshopper images coming . . . am sort of obsessed with them at the moment :-)

    Cool, I love the amount of focus you have. Reminds me of a helicopter waiting to take off!
