Yellow Dung Fly (female) ?
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|UPDATE (and response): |
i don't know exactly if i didn't shoot this picture at F2.8. i know i shoot some pictures in that session even at 2.8 but i don't remember exactly which.
i shoot 3 pictures of this fly in this position. all where in focus but only this one was focus exactly on the insect eye.
I usually post more older pictures. This is a recent one. I shoot this last week when i was in vacation in Zarnesti (a mountain zone from Romania).
I shoot this in poor light conditions. This was shoot in a shadow of a forest at 17PM. So i had to use ISO800 and an open aperture. I had no flash or tripod.
The manual focus is really hard when trying to shoot macros with M42 lenses because you lose luminosity in viewfinder when close the aperture. Also the 400D viewfinder is low quality (small size, bad fresnel)

A Yellow Dung Fly (Scatophaga stercoraria). Gold colour for male, greenish tinge for female, this maybe a female. One of my favourite species. F4,critical focus, which you have accomplished very well with this subject. Very nice. tfp - Les.
The partial focus on the fly is very sharp and crisp, Anghel. With extension tubes, you have succeeded in getting a wonderful macro image of the sunject.
The colours too are fantastic.
Well done and TFS.
