Hi everyone, hope you are well.

Back to my macro shots today. I thought this shot typifies the weather we are having at the moment. Itís chucking it down here! Sad

Large is lovely.

Thanks for looking.

Chucking it down here too Alan, how on earth do you manage to get such accurate focussing using such a very shallow DOF?
A quite superb result, did you anaesthetise him LOL?

Cheers..Leo

I don't know,taking advantage of a poor wet Hover Fly Alan Wink Still you have him real close with plenty of detail & the water drops add so much to this composition.Good colour & dof.
