Just with a 90mm? These are the best, most detailed fly shots I've ever seen...look at those tiny hairs, and the dots on the eyes! 5/5

Beautiful work Rense! As usual your shots are over the top and shame my feeble attempts. Would love to watch as you get such detail, even lighting and DOF with the 90mm.

Yes, 90 mm and some cropping. Thanks for the rating and the compliments!

Thank you! I don't do anything special, I think. Just try to find calm flies in a good position and flash with my DIY diffuser.....
