Here's two shots from this morning.

A fly that "stopped to smell the roses" on some grass.




A long legged fly. These are pretty common around here but they normally don't sit syill long enough to get a picture. This is the closest I have ever been able to get to one, I wanted to get a little bit closer but the fly kept moving away.

Very nice shots both. I think the first one has that little something extra that makes it great.

I agree with Steve, shot 1 really stands out. Just won a Sunpak flash on ebay very very cheap so I`ll be shooting a few of these in the next day or two to test my new toy

Thanks for the comments everyone! I like the first shot too.

The long legged flies are so frustrating to try to shoot. I've never been able to get a good angle on one and have it sit still long enough to get the shot.They're the fastest moving insects I have ever seen.

Mark have fun with the new flash, I've been real happy with mine.

No problem with more flies, if that is what you have to shoot then shoot them. Great shots BTW.
