. . . . . . .

To make easier photographing a fly, I put it in plastic bag and in the freezer for about 1 minute to make it unconscious . .

This one is still unconscious, and put it on sheet of paper before arranging for proper shot . .

After few minute, this fly will awake, and alive normal . .

Thank you for viewing it . .

Hi Tjutjut,
Wow! Amazing the details of the eyes. It is not very beautiful but the details are superb :)Thanks

Superb macro here Tjutjut! Frozen Flies??? HAHA! I never thought of it! Really nice shot, he has whiskers!

Hello Tjutjut,

What a very good trick!
Your macros are wonderfully detailed!
Do you have any desires to be a fly optician?
The sharpness and details are better than any that I have seen in a text book!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Tiutjut.
wonderful macro and great shot.
Lovely colours and frame.Well done.TFS.

Hi Tjutjut
Thanks for being so considerate to the fly. I wonder how you caught him in the first place?
Flys sure have lots of stuff when you see them up close and personal. Super magnification with that lens.


Thanks for the tip.
Excellent capture. Excellent sharpness and details.
Amazing details.
Well done

lagi makro extreme yang cantik hasilnya.. well done, bro Tjutjut.. pasal makro ne gua respect.. cantik dan detail.

asli serem banget mas.
detail dimatanya bener2 keliatan jelas, ga kebayang kalau lalat bisa sebesar ini, gimana jadinya ya :)

kamis malam ya....


Yes I can see that he is lying down, but still a strange idea to have an unconsious insect.
However did you come up with this idea then?

Tjutjut, you made a good macro and a fly really does look fascinating this close-up.


WOW Tjutjut
