Bloody hell!!! That is incredible!! “Wow” doesn’t cover it. What an exquisite shot
Ha-ha! You sound like you are jumping up and down, and waving your arms in the air. I’m glad you like the image, Alastair. 🙂
I almost was 😀 I would love to be able to take a shot like that. It is truly incredible
You can do it. Alastair. 🙂
I love how you can see each individual eye. How did you get the fly to stay still long enough to take the shot? Did you also get a lot of blurry ones?
That was easy, Emily. I sung a lullaby. When the hoverfly was asleep, I crept as close as I could, focused, and fired a burst of 3 shots. This image is the best of the bunch. It’s easy when you know what to do. It just takes practice and a sweet singing voice. 😉
Hmm…. I suspect you may be teasing me, but still I hope it’s true that you creep up on insects whilst singing sweetly!
Did you try counting the eyes Mike?
I am obsessive, Phil. I try to stay away from counting things. 😉
