I caught this fly and put him in the freezer for a little bit then put him on white paper and waited for him to wake up. I might try it with my wife.

Big freezer you have.
Nice high key look macro Taff.
You want to watch the freezer, too long and they're gone. Usually the fridge is cold enough.

Nice try, Taff.
Not bad for home-grown lens work! Not the sharpest, but pretty cool!
Bet your wife didn't hear about the fly going in the freezer!
Well done.

She did, i did it last night and i still havent heard the end of it, she reckons she found a fly buzzing on the floor in pain this afternoon. I am a BEAST she said
( i told her putting a fly into a cryogenic state and the reanimating causes organ failure)

Taff, that is a good concept to have the background high key like that, with the fly standin' stark against. Nice one.

Hey, I almost missed this one. I agree with Pauly's comments. Great shot. What is the home made rig you made? Sounds interesting.
