What a huge housefly - lucky we don't have them here smile

Nice detail.
Mary MacADNski: Really? They are not that big; the photo is much larger in thew shot than lifesize. It was a tiny, tiny ant.

Fantastic detail on the fly - great shot Mary!

Flies are remarkably photogenic, Mary, and this is a super macro of one - look at that eye!
Mary MacADNski: I had a blossom on top touching the barrel of the lens. I couldn;t get any higher to focus on the eye though I tried.

Close enough and sharp enough to count every hair, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: The fly didn't move for a long time.

Oh, what a wonderful close-up of the bee -I love this photo like the whole series! After the rain- this is favourite time.

Very good capture indeed Mary.

Łucja
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Lucia-Maria. I will check in with your blog when I return from my vacation.
All we need now is a friendly bird to come and gobble up the fly!
Mary MacADNski: The birds were off sipping on raindrops too, I would imagine.
