Fly on Azalia.

By simmo73
Firstly many thanks to all again for your lovely support on the Red Squirrel image.
(all U/As thanked) I am very grateful.
Todays image is not such a pretty subject, but taken with my 24-70 f4 s lens.
I was amazed at the detail it gave me after some serious cropping, can't wait to get the new 105mm 2.8 s macro lens. The azalea flower only attract flies as they are decomposing which is how it all works I suppose!
Hope you are all well.

If ever there was beauty in a fly Geoff...

Pristine image and very award worthy!

Have a lovely day.

Not my favourite subject Geoff, I must admit but the quality of the image is outstanding.
That lens has a lot to give.
