Top class work. The out-of-focus background really lifts the subject. Lighting, focus, etc are spot-on. I got one recently but on a dusty path, so very distracting. I appreciate this all the more as a result. Well done.

Beautiful. I am wondering if it might even be better with the benefit of Neat Image or some other program to quiet down the background noise a bit. The fly is just perfectly in focus.

Thank you so much everyone. Special thanks to Pete, I'm still in shock...Hope Ade will forgive me Smile...But it was hard work to get the right shot...I've been shredded by brambles, stung by nettles, bitten by bugs, but I must admit this one was pretty close and I didn't have to take my life in my hands to get to it....Ok I was more than 'Quite Pleased' but no-one wants to blow their own trumpet do they?
Extra special thanks to Ade, for all his help, advice and encouragement....I feel like I've just won an Oscar....Thanks again...Sue

This is a lovely detailed shot and the colour / exposure seem spot on on my screen, excellent work
