Fly


I don't usually take photos of insects (and especially flies, which are best left for my fly swat), but this guy was just sitting on a leaf waiting to be photographed yesterday morning while I took a walk around the garden.

This is quite a tight crop of the original shot, although not as much as for the silvereye shots. After taking this one, I did manage to take a few more shots at half the distance or closer, though those all turned out blurry as the leaf was starting to get bumped around by a light breeze moving through.

  2. Reyante: This was a 60mm macro on a crop sensor :)
