    Its hard isn't it? flippin things wont stay still when you find them

    The teeniest little fly you ever did see less than 1/4 the width of the mortar between the bricks - wanted to see if I could get eye detail

    Another hairy fly - I know the decking wood should be better but I only got one shot before he flew away

    AF was going mental for most of these. Opted for manual 1/800 s ( to eliminate my wobble) and F9 . Speedlite on, auto iso

    Definitely want to try more and want to go for a deeper DoF I think with some better subjects, but this is definitely better than I have done to date

    Chris these are amazing. Your photos look like something out of national geographic. If you weren't such a good Dr, I'd say you missed your calling with photography!
