could not get the dof on this fly so had to take two shots one of the head then the tail, when i tried to move and set a smaller f/stop it flew of !
Both are equally fine pictures
I prefer version 1, where the head is in focus. Such a pretty fly, well caught with an out of focus background.
If you have a post processing programme you could use the tail from version 2 and replace the tail in version 1!
Version 1 for me - excellent!
V1 for me on this one. I'm just getting into macro photography myself but a couple of ePz users said to me that f11 is a great starting point also to try shooting at more of an angle rather than side on. I've also gone & got a set of macro rails off of eBay to help with the fine adjustments that you have to make as I couldn't get over how little you have to move before the subject was out of focus
Other than that great work on this macro shot.
I'd be pleased with either of these, but V1 is tops as the head's in focus. Top shot of such a tiny subject, and that tail looks fierce!
Lovely image of the Scorpion fly, not easy as they are always on the move
Very good shots, Colin.
Seem to be quite a lot of these around this year - is it the weather conditions maybe? Good shots Colin. Lou
Good shot of a flighty insect, difficult to capture.
