Yesterday I had a day off and so I go fishing and trying my new camera. I play with the F numbers and got by F 8 this fantastic result. This was the reason to buy this camera, because I held sharpnes over, and I could come closer then before. I like the result, Okee it is just a fly, it is not realy spectucalair, it is just good, I hope you like it to. This is an orginal image. I only used neat for some noise.

A great macro, Jaap!
Nice POV, and sharp details.
We can see its shoes ;-)!
This Canon is known for making very good macros, and it seems to be the truth in your hands.
Very good work you did.

Great shot Jaap! Maybe subject isn't very cute but your photo is good for sure. I bet you have lot of fun with your new cam. I like pose of this fly with two legs in air.

Very good macro, Jaap. I like the colours, composition and the interesting note. Well done.

Not bad Jaap, it might be an ordinary fly but it is shown in some pretty good detail especially as apart from the neat image you did nothing. I particularly like the foot detail with the grippy pads. TFS

It is more than 'just good' to my eyes. I wish I could take so 'just good' photos. I look forwards to see more macro from you.
Thank you.

Goedemorgen Jaap,
Daarnet dacht ik nog verbeteren zal moeilijk zijn, maar deze is natuurlijk ook zeer mooi, de detail welke wij met het blote oog nooit kunnen waarnemen, liggen hier zo voor het rapen, maar ik denk Jaap dat u nog zal verbeteren met dit toestel, eenmaal dat men zoiets kan wil men net nog iets beter, dit gedachtegoed is mij bekent.
Groeten uit Vlaanderen,

Great macro Jaap,
Excellent clear sharp details.
Nice composition, Thanks for posting

Its amazing how interesting an ordinary fly can look when you see it this close up.This is an excellent macro.I might have sharpened it a bit more,but if there was some noise to start with it was probably best not to.Great work Jaap.

Great macro, I wish mine was that good. Excellent POV and detail of the fly's feet. Great stuff.

WOW! Jaap, jy begryp die kamera alreeds goed.

Excellent close-up. Nice details and POV. I like the feet in the air. You have come to grips with this new camera very fast. Very well done.

An amazing macro shot,Jaap! I am not fond of flies, however, this one is well detailed, with good lighting and those eyes! Very good composition, thank you for sharing it with us. Happy hunting with your new camera...

Your point of view here, Jaap, really gives the fly a sense of power. And with its front legs raise up like that, it looks ready for action. Incredible detail. Well captured.

Incredible this macro, the subject is beautiful with the red eyes and its hoofs in paws. Magnificent specimen! I like very much.

Incroyable cette macro, le sujet est beau avec ses yeux rouges et ses sabots dans les pattes. Magnifique spécimen! J'aime beaucoup.

An interesting pose, good composition and amazing detail. I suppose DOF could be a little bigger but it's OK.
Well done.

Hi Jaap!
Ecellent and perfect macro! Great POV, detalis and colors! Bravo! Well done and TFS ;-)
best regards
