Striking A Pose

Striking A Pose

Posted: 17.07.07 | Category: [Macro]  

First time I've used my Macro lens for an insect shot - I mustn't have the correct flowers and plants as I really don't see many (or I'm just not out at the correct time). This one here (I assume a common fly) was quite happy to have its photo taken whilst taking a break on a Lily petal, and was quite still throughout the whole thing.

More macro goodness over at morning life.

  • I love the composition and the colors of the flower. And there's really alot of detail in that fly. Neat how it folded it's wings, almost like it's posing for you.

  • They're ugly looking things but still darn interesting for some bizarre reason :)

    Like those nice warm summer colours in the flower too
