Very nice for a shitfly ;-)!
The focus is perhaps a little soft, but the composition is really good, with an efficient DOF, and well satured colours.
I didn't have the occasion to say it before, but it's a great pleasure to have you back on TN.
You were one of my favourite poster on TE, you guide me on TN, and I'll never thanks you enough.
I'll wait for your next posts.
Thanks for sharing (and be there, among us).

A very good picture, a sligt regret that the DOF is shifted a little bit to the front so that the head of the fly is a bit soft. But composition and light saves it. BTW, Scatophaga is also a predator and often captures other insects to suck them dry...
Good job, we'll watch this space.

Well done on the note about the Shitfly. Excelent composition and well done with this capture.
Hopefully, we'll see one on Cowdung, mmmm.

Hello Jaap, lovely composition and colours, perhaps a little soft in focus but not too bad. It's a nice colourful shot and a nice note. Well done.
Jaap, I guess there's a little mistake here: if this is your first attempt with you new camera, then the data above are not correct; after all, it's written Fujifilm Finepix S7000 - the same you used in other shots.
So, let me ask you: is this your first shot with the Pro 1?
As for the photo, I like composition and colors. Pov is nice too. Very good first try.

Jaap, Great composition and colors..I thought it a bit strange that I was just out yesterday shooting this same fly on this same white daisy!!! Wierd. Great job.

Very nice macro Jaap
Very good composition, DOF and great colours.
Great note like always.
Very well done, my friend.
Zeker niet slecht met uw nieuwe camera, en zeker zeer grrot gemaakt van een Madeliefje tot deze foto, Jaap ik ben zeker geen specialist maar ik wil helpen indien mogelijk, vraag; is de focus niet teveel op de bloem dan op de Vlieg? spreek mij aub tegen als dit niet juist mocht zijn.

Nice capture Jaap,
Nice composition, details, colours and wing detail. As has already been mentioned the focus is a touch to soft.
Thanks for posting

Good first try Jaap! Nice POV, composition and colours. Focus is little soft I think. Very interesting subject and excellent note.

Hi Japp. I look forward to see more shoots as nice as this one. More light will give you a better focus, I think.
Enjoy yourself with your new toy!
Thanks for the picture and the complete note.

Focus is a bit soft but otherwise this is a nice picture. Colors are very good and the note is great. TFS!
For the first one it's a succes!! very nice photo.
I see that you have a new camera. I have got the same but I find it very complicated.
Can you tell me what adjusments on your pro 1 you use for the macro shot? Thanks in advance.
