These are beautiful shots of some very ugly bugs...

By the way, your website has incredibly beautiful macro shots. Simply amazing.

Suuuuuper shots. Amazing detail. Great to see.
We don't get the yellow dung fly here, I think it's cos we don't get yellow Dung. Lots of brown dung.

man... im turning green here i have tried photographing several flies on various occasions and i can never get that much focus (DOF) were these again with the kenko tubes ? do you use a dedicated macro ring flash ? the top picture is amazing just like all the rest you post all the detail is crisp as it can be and nice and bright.

amazing exceptional macro .

yes I used extension tube 20mm + 70/180 macro nikon
No I don't use flash and I think the shots are bright for 70/180, a very very good lens for macro
