Ok - this really isn't going to appeal to many of you but I'm having great fun getting to know my new macro lens and even dead flies are acceptable subject matter.
I thought I'd see what the Lucisart Whyeth did to the resulting picture - good fun!
I suppose I should find something living but I'm used to my subject matter staying where I put it

I wish I never clicked the big one, hope you dont mind if I just say urrghh!
(good shot though lol)
Incredible detail - excellent result with new lense.
wow, fantastic macro, the detail is so sharp....very well taken..
p.s poor fly though lol
p.p. You must go large on this...superb
There is some good detail there, and the large version could give those of a nervous disposition a scare.
wow great image
The Monty Python 'Norwegian Blue' sketch comes to mind!!
(Brilliant details, even if it is dead!).
Blimey - thanks everyone
I understand your "urrghh" K. - there are a lot of people that will probably think exactly the same
The flies have been, well, dropping like flies round here. For some reason one minute they were buzzing round the living room and all of a sudden I'm vacuuming up lots of little corpses. There must be something in the paint that I used on the walls in here that disagrees with them
Revolting subject but a cracking photo!! Jane
great shot i was going to do the same its practise Dawn
Excellent shot and processing of this ex fly. It's a little trickier with live ones though
pretty impressive to say the least,really like the effect amazing detail on it......must try a dead one lol
maybe pretty wasn`t such a good choice of words though
Great work, superb detail.
Thanks again everyone - I'm glad I could revolt you all
'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! - I've just read through the Python sketch again - daft
I'll stick with the deaduns for now - maybe I'll try something live another day!
Damn, KarenFB beat me to the Norwegian Blue thingy.
Stunning detail in this dear!
I hope you gave him a full military funeral
Absolutely gross but great detail.
Fabulous detail. Carol
I see you are getting used to your 50macro lens quicker than I am with mine....just can't get the hang of it at all.
This is amazing Alison.
You have captured some fantastic detail to this little fly...the very fine hairs, the different colours to his body & just look at that eye......WOW......
indeed laughable; this fly looks like a cow preparing to lie down.
Evening all and thank you again! A big thank you to you Hilary for your award - greatly appreciated
I'm afraid the fly got ceremoniously dumped in the bin Goggz but he at least he will now live on forever in EPZ-land!
I had similar thoughts on this one Mr Macdaniel poor thing must have just gone "I don't feel very well, must lie down for a rest" and only got that far!
Hey stick at it Hilary - I've produced plenty of duff shots with this lens too but I've only had it a week and am trying to allow myself 20 minutes or so each evening with it - fortunately I have no other real ties on my time in the evenings so am lucky enough to be able to do so!

Might be a dead un....but a very , very good un!
Very effective treatment and macro work.
dont usually do bugs, but this grabbed my attention
Thanks Lesley - he is rather a nice fly if a bit still! - he's framed and mounted on my living room wall now!
