Part of "MY BEST" Set, a collection of Images that I feel represent my skill as a Photographer, as well as reveal my eye for picking good quality Images. View more of MY BEST here.
Macros are addictive. As I began playing around with the borrowed Macro Lens last week, so many subjects started to show up everywhere.
This one was particularly interesting. Though called a Fly, this one did not fly for almost 3 hours. My first shot of him was around 12:00 noon, and the last one was around 3:00pm. He was just there on this twig all that time. Probably sleeping. Probably drunk.
The first few shots I did were handheld, which themselves were pretty good. But I realized the need for a more stable base, and hence set it on my tripod.
The result was worth it.
Photographed with Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Canon EF 100mm F2.8 USM L Lens. On a Tripod, used as a Monopod.
