Long Legged Green Fly letting me get up close.

Taken with the Canon RF100mm F2.8L IS USM (not yet in database).

Dennis, this is really a brilliant photo. This fly was tiny, right? My efforts with subjects like this get bad specular highlights and diffraction softening. How do you do it?

Hi Ed

Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it.:-)

This was the 1st session commissioning my new macro rig, made up of a Really Right Stuff Ring, a bit of DIY aluminium bar to mount the flash, and a lens hood diffuser made from LCD diffuser sheet with a layer of China SIlk glued on top of it, by the edges with contact adhesive.

Usually these long-legged fly's jump out of the scene, spooked by the pre-flash but this one not only remained still, but allowed me to re-position myself for a couple of different shots.

Cheers

Dennis

I like that. How is it to hand hold?

I tend to hold it by the ring at the balance point and it is acceptably light and manoeuvrable, given its bulk. Noticeably lighter than my similar older 5D Mk IV set up.:-)

Some recent posts.
The large thread-legged bug (Emesaya brevipennis) is a walking-stick-like predatory bug belonging in the assassin bug family.

Mating bumble bees. I think its the common Eastern bumble bee, Pyrobombus impatiens. They had plopped down in front of me, and just sat there.

Mating locust borers (Megacyllene robiniae). Common on goldenrod in the late summer. Its believed that these beetles are wasp mimics. From above, I am not sure how convincing that is, but from the side, I can see it.

Very impressive. I appreciate you sharing this with us.

There seem to be no limits to the clever diffusers we can make. This one looks to be very effective for this small fly.

This is a bumblebee in yellow fuzz. I believe the name is Bombus perplexus.

Really nice captures!

The center photo I believe is a borer than when viewed from top reminds me of the patern of a Zulu warriors shield. :-)

Great shots, Mark. That first one is quite fascinating and mysterious.

Very nice. I haven’t seen any dragonflies up close yet this year. They always look happy.

A friendly and cooperative yellow jacket. I used a different diffuser (just a prototype) for this, inspired by Dennis's design.
