Fly on a leaf

By Paul_cats
Went out by the river today to take some shots of wildlife. Was there about ten minutes before thunder, lightning, hailstones and a herrendous downpour so that was that!! Just enough time to set up tripod and fire a few shots of this fly on a leaf. Best I could muster today folks.
Hope you like it.

well it is a great shot of a fly - bet that not many would make such an excellent effort with them.

Fantastic rendition of this fly on an OOF leaf!!! I love getting the EXIF info, helps me in trying to emulate how 'real' photographers do it!

Fantastic macro shot. Didn't realise you could get such a good shot without macro lens.
Everything perfect with OOf leaf.
