"FLY AWAY!"

2012.05.09

Today, this little fly landed on my leg when we stopped to check into a hotel, then he rode on my finger when we took the motorcycle to our room! Since he was on my right-hand pinkie finger, I had to get him in focus THEN snap the shutter with my same-hand pointer finger! Considering the contortions I went through to get the shot, I loved the way it turned out!

(I wanted to keep him, but Larry wouldn't let him in the room!)

These are great Brenda!!!

TeraMoon Hahaha! That good, Brenda! The 2 # is spectacular, the details of the wings ... Most would say it does not seem so desagrable ... Hahaha! Congratulations for this capture, this fly is a great model :))

lgnelson Great shot - do you need to use a mini flyswatter for one of these?
