Hey,

Were these with the Viv 90mm f2.5?
Yes.

Anything else used?
Sunlight, patience, surroundings to lean on for stabilisation.

How far away from the fly were you and how much of the frame is this a crop of?
Some cm... can't say exactly. As macro lenses are LOOOONG when extended it's really only some cm from the lens front to the object. I extended the lens to the 1:1 position and focussed by moving back and forth until the fly was "sharp" (to say so). That's the basic MF method for macros anyway (for me at least).

I can dig through my original photos for the last question, a rough guess is something like a 50-60% crop, but I am somewhat unsure here.

Hey,

I've got two other 1:1 crops (as in: 1 pixel here = 1 camera pixel) for you. Taken with Vivitar 2x macro TC and Pentax 40/2.8 pencake lens (Pentax DL2), a very small/lightweight macro combo. Maybe not exactly 1:1 macro ratio, but nice for travelling. The 40/2.8 pencake, the 50/2.8 and the 85/2 (all Pentax) work well with the Viv macro TC and I can use the camera flash even in 1:1 mode which is a plus!

Crop1 (pencil) - watch the detail at the paper border etc.
