  3. Sorry Tim, must have missed this excellent shot entirely. I think the veins in the wings of the fly are spectacular. Wonderful image with nice color in the mum and the fly itself. Keep them coming.

    I've tried and tried to capture a fly like this but they never seem to stay still long enough.

    I really like this one. Thanks for sharing.
     
  7. You know, I'm with Patrick, I can never figure out how you guys do it. Fly's won't even sit still long enough for me to swat them let alone take their picture. It amazes me to see one like this.
