    Has anyone here actually caught a fly that's literally just taken off?
    In mid air so to speak?
    I think this is as close as I've ever got :smile:

    Thank you!

    I think maybe a Fly In Readyness :wink:

    You can almost feel the tension in his legs!
     
  6. Wonderful detail on this shot. Heck I can't even swat one with my hand let alone catch it with my camera. :smile:

    Thank you Tom. I still don't kmow much about tubes. A friend of mine uses them on his Tamron 90mm and to be honest I always think I can get just as close without them :confused:
