Macro photography – Hoverfly


My favorite lens for macro photography is my 90mm Tamron f/2.8 and this picture was taken with that lens on my Pentax K5 in August this year. This is actually a crop from a larger image, but the resolution is good enough to still produce a good picture.

I’m not sure of the species of hoverfly, but I found it sitting on a flower in our back garden as I was searching for subjects one afternoon. I did a bit of post-processing in Lightroom (including cropping), adjusting the shadow detail, adding some noise reduction and some sharpening.
