Spotted preying on a Flesh fly.
alicelongmartin - I spend a great deal of time studying & researching native beneficial insects and pollinators so I've been learning them as I go :)It all started with my first observation of a Robber Fly - It was so intriguing, I just had to learn more!
How on Earth have you learned to know all these insects? And do you remember what got you started in learning to know them?
Thanks again Cheryl, The new Nikon 1 looks as though it would be great for this, but with the lens, it is way outside my budget for amateur photography :(
I recently upgraded to a Nikon D300, and it is exactly as you say ~ very heavy and awkward for macro shots. I really loved my Nikon D40, much easier to use. Your macro shots are incredibly sharp, I am amazed by your photographs.
@Cheryl LeeThank you :) To be honest all my photos are taken with a point & shoot Canon that happens to have a really decent macro for a compact. I've considered upgrading to a DSLR but I'm worried a larger camera & extra equipment may be too awkward to get these candid shots.
I love your photography!
Amazing picture! Do you use a monostick or tripod on your macros?
Wow that fly didnt know what was coming!
