Default Striped shirt, glossy skirt, red goggles!

Garden fly, almost double the size of a housefly. I tried running red-eye removal program and it painted the eyes Ray-ban green! I opted to post the original colors.

Raghu,

very impressive shot, very clear and sharp.
Did you used a close up lens?

Cheers,

Stefan

Yes, Stefan. Raynox 250 on FZ28 closer to maximum zoom.

Wow - great shot, but that Raynox has an extremely shallow DOF! No wonder some find it tricky to use.

Thanks, all. I am not sure if altering aperture will help in better DOF with Raynox - will remember and test it the next time I shoot a macro.
