Hover Fly

By Perry_95
Took me ages to get this shot, not as sharp as i would of liked but all the body parts are clear enough, you can even see a blur of a wing and considereing the shutter speed was 1/320 you can see just how fast these little beggers are! So as i said i would of liked a sharper image however raising the ISO to 200 would of increased the shutter speed but not necessarily made it sharper as i believe the focus is what is out of place :/

Cropped it out of the center so it isnt in the middle either verticaly or horizontally and has plenty of room ahead of it so it doesnt look trapped and have that enclosed feel about it.

Any tips on improvement and any help on how to increase chances of spot on focusing (manually) are greatly appreciated Smile
