Intimidating. They say they will survive us.

great shot, really like the fact that the Raynox dcr250 are showing up more and more.

Really like that small add on lens.

Amazing shot Simon. Have you considered focus stacking a few shots for greater DOF? And would you please post a size as shot of the head area only? With your great focusing the fly's eye looks really good and clear for a close up look see.

You carefully focus from the closest point to the farthest point. Then take all your shots and open them in Helicon Focus. Its same as Photomatix. It takes all the shots and creates one all focus final. Also regarding the fly head. You must have downsized your original pic to fit on the site. Well if you just crop the head area and post to the site at 100% of original size then you dont have to reshoot it. Looks like its sharp at 100%. Regarding Helicon Focus....PM me.
