This bug is the perfect model. It has lots of detail. Beautiful colored spikesand it doesn't move that much and that fast.



Same bug on a different flower



Fly in focus



I found out thatthis fly always returned to the same place. So I had many opportunities. This fly attacked my lens a couple of time.



Different fly, to bad it's out of focus. This fly was hovering in front of my lens for about 20 sec. but I couldn't get him in focus.

Fantastic detail! Especially the fly sideview. The first couple images are adolescent ladybugs believe it or not! What type of camera did you use?

How did you attach the Olympus Zuiko lens 50 mm f/1.8? A reverse coupling ring?

I glued two rings together. Threaded on the outside. One 49mm and one 58mm. was very hard to find these rings.
