It is quite hard to find any insect in these cold november days. This small fly (not larger than 4 mm) was sitting on a tree stump and didn't look very special at all. But seen through a microscope objective ...



Taken with Canon EOS 5D, Mitutoyo M Plan Apo 10x microscope objective on bellows, ISO 50, flash, paper cylinder diffuser, stacked with Zerene, mix of PMax and DMap method.

Wow! The large version over at Flickr is stunning. You even got all the longitudinal striations on the large bristles. Very nice!

Rik, Chris, Martin & Madmacro, many thanks for your comments.

Charles, when I started with this kind of photography I've read all your pdf-articles more than once ... Thank you for publishing your knowledge!

I love the way the most innocuous looking little fly can become so amazing when viewed through a decent objective! Beautifully done! Smile

I especially love the lighting and the balance of the background with the fly's colors and shadows.

Exceptional detail in an exceptional photograph, well beyond my ordinary language abilities!

At the risk of sounding redundant, beautiful detail and perfect background! Smile
