Male Yellow Dungfly

By barrywebb  
I've just discovered I had also taken a shot of the male Dungfly too, in the same spot on the Northumberland coast path. The male is larger with very fine, almost furry hairs on it's abdomen and legs. It also has a hunched appearance. This one had settled on Goose grass, and stayed quite a while to have it's photo taken! Dungflies are a great subject if you want to try focus stacking. This image was an 8 shot stack.

I waited for the wind to drop, then fired at 10 frames a second. Zerene stacker will also align the images to a certain degree. This one worked better than most.

Even before viewing I knew what to expect. A great quality macro of an insect I will probably not be familiar with but I am learning more about the insect World all the time.
