Macro photography – Green Fly

Green Fly

We are on our way to Durham in the north of England for a holiday and stopped off at my Mother-in-laws house in Loughborough. I had a walk round in garden and found a Golden Rod bush covered in green flies having a wonderful time flitting about the bush. I got my Pentax K-5 and Tamron 90mm Macro and took a few pictures, this one being the best. Unfortunately I hadn’t realised that my wife had borroed the camera and left in in jpeg mode so I broke one of my golden rules by not shooting in raw. Still, the jpag took a bit of contrast boost and cropping to create quite a nice image.

  • Pentax K-5
  • Tamron 90mm f/2.8
  • f/9.0
  • 1/60th sec
  • ISO400
