Still waiting.

SMC M Pentax 50/4

First time posting any pics here. I love this lens...maybe my favorite macro...even though it is only 1:2.

An ugly housefly sitting on a lamp in my livingroom.

Edit: Uploaded a lighter version + a true 100% crop for details.

This is probably a 40%ish crop. I made the original crop 2629pix width but flickr downsized it to 1024. I guess Im to cheap to pay for a real account....
actually it's not just good but excellent considering that wasn't even shot at macro distance. I could had shot the image at 1:1 or 1:2 magnification to show the details at an even more intricate level, but that wasn't my intention.

anyway, great detail on the housefly. hope to get some shots by next week. weather here has been really weird this year.

Those are stunning, Lisa! Especially the last one where you managed to keep the details in the bright light.
