[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of those little brown flyes that we usually find in the forest resting in the tip of the leafes. They are veeeery small. The leafe is a fern.

With the magnification level that the sony close up+Raynox DCR-250 offers we discover how monstrous they are :)

Hope you like!

Hi Felipe!
Short break aftern field studies in Spala Landscape park and before trip to Macedonia so there is some time for TN ;>
This is a good example how to use the macro lens in right way! :) Lovely picture with perfect details!
I have only 1 question: what means "veeeery small"? 5 mm? less? more?
Best greetings,

Yes, about to take off! Terrific details! Excellendt DOF! Regards, Marta

bonjour felipe
je reste a chaque fois en admiration devant vos macro,les poils sur le dos de la mouche sont vraiment detaillés.
la netteté sur l'ensemble et en particulier sur l'oeil est parfaite.
