Green bottle fly can be easily found in nature. I found this fly near the cow dung. Found its sitting calm and steady on a leaf. Take out my camera and shoot at 1:1 . C & C welcome.


Taken by handheld.

Fantastic, and a little depressing. Everytime I think I'm making progress you post something like this

Wow, that's amazing. I never thought a fly could look so good!

What a great shot!

I've been considering getting a "100mm Pentax D FA Macro WR lens" for my newly aquired Pentax - K5, and this shot has convinced me that I certainly must do so, asap! However, I need to sell some old equipment first!

The lighting and detail you get on these shots is amazing. And how on earth do you get them so sharp handheld? Your macro shots are among the best I have ever seen.

If I thought it was just the lens I'd get one tomorrow, but I suspect the lens is just a small part of the equation. I bet mine wouldn't come out like that with the same lens. There is an awful lot of skill here as well.

I bet mine wouldn't either.

If I stuck it down with superglue I'd probably still get a blurred pic.


Well done that man

How right you are.

I have a Pentax 100mm Macro WR, on a K5, I cant get anything like that sort of quality/magnification.

Take my hat off to, Hisham.


Take care.

All I was inferring by my comment was that the lens is capable of great quality images, as shown by Hisham, so, as I thought previously, would be a good choice of Macro lenses for me to get.
Whether or not I could achieve anything as good as Hisham's images is irrelevant. I was only interested in its capability, which is obviously excellent.
