No definitely not a parasite, just part of the flies anatomy I guess ... I have a similar shot to Ronnys, and the appendage, whatever it is shows there ... Jack

Unbelievable series, it's amazing what a nice setup and tempered skills can capture.

ron,
really nice shots. the sigma works well. are you bouncing or difussing it?

i also know what you mean about the rain and getting depressed. we broke the 80 year old record for the month of June last month. i've never seen anything like it here.. it just will not stop..

Truly excellent shots! I find flies to be pretty shy, how do you get so close?

Thanks Roy,

Difussing it, got a Lumiquest soft box and it works rather good. Going to construct a bounce thing (something like you've got - maybe a bit less of quality:G ) and see what the difference is.

We've broke the 250year record, :? - seems to be a wet summer everywhere.

Thanks Tim,

Don't know how, just a very slowly approach I guess. As long as there is no sudden movement they stay put .
