Macro Photography – Bluebottle Fly



This is another macro shot, this time taken with a Tamron 70-300mm Maco zoom on a Pentax K200D DSLR. Unfortunately the fly wouldn’t turn round so I could capture him (her?) full in the face but it’s quite a detailed shot anyway.

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.
