Fun fact! Fly eyes have the fastest visual responses in the animal kingdom, but how they achieve this has long been a mystery. A recent study found their rapid vision might be a result of their photoreceptors - specialized cells found in the retina - physically contracting in response to light. The mechanical force then generates electrical responses that are sent to the brain much faster than the chemical messenges that transmit messages in our own eyes.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=...https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/3...
great photos and information re: macro.Salamat Kabayan!
Wonderful photos and movie - WOW!
I'm speechless !Thanks for these cool pics !
Thanks everyone.@carlabrauer, I used a Nikon D40 but with different lens setups: For the first and third photo i used reversed 18-55mm kit lens. On the second photo, a 55-200mm vr lens with reversed 58mm minolta lens. The inflight shot was taken with the 18-55mm lens alone mounted normally. The video was taken with the Panasonic HDC-HS300s coupled with a handheld reversed 58mm Minolta lens. Here are some photos of my setup: http://www.flickr.com/people/prodigi/

Wow - it sat still for you to take those amazing photos
