Not getting into the garden as much as I'd like, but managed to get in a few shots yesterday,
Which version of the fly works best for you ?

Morning Derek,

Defiantly the first image, the yellows are to bright in the second image which distracts from the subject and #3 imo, just looks un-balanced and a bit odd

+1. Best for me would be the fly as in No. 2 with the background as in the No. 1.

What on earth is No. 3? I can't work out how many heads, eyes, legs, antennae there are!

3rd one is some kind of daddy long legs, what we call them anyway, hard to get a decent shot as their legs are always in the way. Lots of joints and angles. Weird bloody yolks,
Cheers guys.

Yes, that's it. The eyes are now drawn to the eyes (if you see what I mean) and to the superb detail in the face, rather than to the yellow background.

A daddy long legs is the same thing here, and has been since I was a kid. They always seemed to have a random number of legs, depending on what other children (not me, of course...) had done to them. Never tried to photograph one, perhaps I'll have a go later in the year when they emerge from nowhere and stagger across the lawn.

No.3, the DLL for me!

I can vouch for the degree of difficulty in achieving eyes-in-focus on these creatures , I've tried & it is extremely hard to get!

Great shot!.

Roger.

I read somewhere that their legs are "deciduous".....
get your brain round that, then!!
The more I look, the more there is to see!

Yep, no.1 due to the more subdued colours

The second version of No.1 for me also. The newest more natural fly being my favourite over all.
