After last weeks first attempt at macro, i brought myself some inexpensive tubes to go on the end of my 70-200 and this was the first shot i got with it. its just a fly was the responce i got after getting all excited wondering what exotic creature i had captured! i really like the contrast of the fly on the buttercup so thought i would post it up.

Can i take this chance to say a massive thank you to all that voted on No smoking please. It was my first EC and GEA so i was buzzing all weekend!
