I got closer than expected for this marco shot of an unsuppecting fly. Freehand shot at 100 ISO, everything else was Auto - having a lazy weekend

Not really a beauty isn't it! I'm glad I'm not a bug - I'd be scared to death dating this one!

Thanks for the comments.

Yes, it is quite the ugly beast, I wanted to find a more attractive fly at the bar but, see what a few beers do? :shock:

Yes that's me. I never liked the other one, sort of 'strike the pose'.

Funny I don't have many pics of me as I'm usually on the other side of the lens and my wife doesn't take many or are lousy shots of me. She finally got a reasonable one.

Excellent detail, depth of field and cropping

Is this a minature Jeff Goldblum?

In honor of your photo...

I suggest a contest!

Everyone do a self-portrait macro of their
nose hairs and post it here.

Prize???

Gee...I would have to get back to you on that one!

About the nose hair contest...I'd win hands down, you can tie up a cruise liner with mine :lol: :shock: :lol:

With that said, what type of prize will you "pick" for the winner :lol:
