Default Bleee, disgusting

Rediscovered macro. Shame to let such good lens lie about. Vivitar S1 105 macro + auto extension tubes + flash

As usual all C&C welcome

Greg

2 and 3 are nice shots but #1 is excellent, I've shot many flies but have never seen one so covered in pollen - well captured !

Greg - glad to see your "re-discover" results! Must agree with Kevin, #1 is outstanding!

Don't disagree, that first one is an awesome shot! That Viv macro is one nice lens.

Thanks guys.

I can see not many fans of disgusting things around here . Can't blame you, my wife didn't like them at all.

# 1 of the bee covered with pollen is the winner for me as well. I have the Viv series 1 105 but you make me want to get some extension tubes for it.
