I have never liked flies, they seemed irritating, but that one was so peacefully sitting and when close-uped seemed to be interesting and so fragile :)

Hi Elena,
I donīt like flies either, but they are very much photogenic indeed !
In my photo galery in TrekEarth (nivaldo)you can see also a nice pic (macro) which I made with a fly sometime ago. It also seemed very shy and fragile on a rose bottom, and I had decided to post it too. You can take a look if you want !
You did a great job. The colours and sharpness are perfect!
Congratulations ,
Greetings from Brazil,

Hi Elena

Hi Elena

Nice macro of the old fly. It has a nice look to it, soft but still sharp and detailed where it matters most. He's jet black with pretty rainbow wings...the green leaf looks nice. I'm not going to bother posting my fly after seeing yours:) Nice shooting Elena! TFS

I am amazed Lena.
are U sure it was snaped with the c-765uz?
from what distance?
great macro.
excellent pov.
lol David

This is a great macro Elena, with lovely detail and colours on the wings. Maybe a larger aperture would keep the whole subject in focus.
