Default Bugs on flowers

Inspired by Greg these were done at 2x with a bodged together setup that cost me about $30 most of which was the Soligor ring flash. Didn't find much to shoot with it last weekend but these two turned out ok.

You got more than I did. This weekend was the 50 f2/EC20 and I wasn't up to the task for the few insects I came across.

Really like the first shot and the other is very good also!

Thanks Greg. I was amazed at how few bugs I found. I also made the mistake of not putting fresh batteries in the ring flash and while the Soligor thing is good when the batters get down it takes forever to recharge, hence I was only able to get the one shot with the fly. Live and learn I guess.
