A few flies

  1. Went out in the yard today for a little while to see what I could find. Here's a sample of a few flies that stayed still long enough for a picture.




    All shots are with the D2x and 105 micro (non-VR).

    Amazing that you can shoot a fly.
  3. Wow, those are great, inspiring. I imgaine #3 was a very hard shot to get (or at least duplicate), but I think I like #2 the best due to it's composition.

    Thanks for sharing :smile:

    Great pics, very sharp and #3 is great, great capture! Good work. Thanks for sharing.
  5. Really neat. I'm trying to understand what I'm seeing in #3, are those flies mating in flight?
  6. Yes. I actually was able to get a few shots of those flies. The most amazing part is that the lower fly didn't use its wings. The top fly did all the wing work :smile:
  7. Wow!! Amazing detail and you caught them mating in flight too!? You're hooked Rich!! Good thing you have a macro lens!!:biggrin:

    that in flight is great
  9. Very sharp images, Rich. Getting an in-flight shot like you did is amazing to me. I have trouble getting things in focus when they are stationary. Great job.
