Nice shot... but your model needs to shave its legs.

He said its a dung fly, i am glad for the unshaven legs rather than a picture of it in its normal habitat .

Great shot!

Rense, that is a really nice fly macro. This is where a 50 mm shines, one would never get that DOF with a 100 mm. Thanks for posting it.

Very nice shot, the detail is stunning. You sure have gotten good at these types of macros.

Great job!

Thank you Dave. No, this is an M-lens without A-setting....
You should see this thread for more info on the macro diffuser, especially post 65!

I was almost hesitant to join the throng Rense, but I have to say, that is a beautifully done Macro shot. Excellent.
