Artist's Description

The hardest part of insect macro photography is finding a suitable subject, that is interesting and … still.
It needs to stay still long enough for me to set up the lights, decide on the composition and get at least dozen shots. One way to get it done is to shooting after dark. Some night insects are active and come out of hiding and the insects that are active during the day “go to sleep” and if you find them they are perfect as they stay very calm.
I found this cute fly sitting still on a leaf and I had enough time so I decided on a portrait.
