Thanks for the comments/votes on the last upload.
Today I have chosen a bug of some king. The best ID I can get is that it is a relative of the house fly; a Musca Domestica. UPDATE UPDATE now identified as a Dexia Rustica.
I spotted it hanging around on an upturned terracotta pot with my shed providing the other half of the background.
If anyone out there has an alternative ID I would be pleased to know.
Thanks for viewing.
WOW !! Awesome detail Paul,almost scary !!
Have absolutely no Idea what this is...cracking capture though.
Fantastic detail Paul. Superb macro shot.
Excellent macro! No idea what it is though.
A stunning macro with outstanding detail. I'm glad it's not lifesize.
Superb macro shot, Paul...the detail captured is really impressive.
Stunning macro, looked it up in my faithful book and I think its a Dexia Rustica, a type of parasitic fly that lays its eggs in the larvae of a chafer beetle.
great close up, yukky insect
Hairy little beast (the fly that is), superb detail Paul, excellent macro shot.
Thank you for the comments and to Tracy for the ID, I think you are correct having researched the name you gave, thanks.
Lovely detail Paul
stunning close up and great detail.
Hi Paul great shot gray
An excellent macro
Fine detail and fine technique.
Yuk but fine detailed capture - well done Paul - Ina
a cracking image!
Thank you one and all.
Nikon 105mm with a 1.7x tele, well that's another idea instead of the Sigma 150mm Paul, as I already have the 1.7x tele this may be the answer for my macro shots
A super close up with cracking detail, now.....I hope you swatted it after you got the shot....I hate flies,
Well-detailed macro capture Paul - lovely rich warm tones. Great detail of the hairs on its body - I always feel guilty about swatting these now I know the minute detail that has gone into their "design" LOL - however, that's not to say I don't swat them, beastly things!!!!
Very sharp detail and fine image Paul.
Stunning macro image
really stunning Macro Paul, really fine detail captured
Oops, sorry, I missed this one...a superb macro, really good.
