That is brilliant! There seems to be a remarkable depth of field for such a macro view. How close were you to the fly/how much is this picture cropped? How can so many people have looked at this and noone commented? I'd be very pleased to have got such a clear shot . Did you use any special lighting? colinb23

Thanks colinb23.

To answer your questions;
I was around 11 inches from the subject. I cropped 1/9th of the original shot.

Lighting set-up used was a YN460II at 1/8 power thru a recycled KFC bucket lid as a diffuser.
