This is one of those lucky shots - I was in class (I am a teacher) and saw the fly. The kids encouraged me to take a photo, to see how I do macro. After surprising them at how long it took to set up my rig, I took ONE photo only - yep - this is the only attempt of the fly I did. First time I got a 100% keeper rate for macro subject!!
So, no, its not a stack. though I wish I did, the proboscis would be have been nice in focus too :-)


cheers, Paul

Nice one. Gotta love the 100% keeper rate, even if only for a day!

Thats great, you got a bunch of kids interested in photography! All it took was one shot. And a really long setup. :lol:
