Very well done on the frame layout. Nice double layered and not obstrusive. The pinks from the flower add a soft presence too it. Nice work. Artistic as they said indeed.

Your choice of F-22 worked very well here, keeping also the details of the flower within DOF range. Colours are good, too. Enjoy your flies, ours will soon be gone for this year ;-))

Jaap, Like what you did with this fly swatting material! Seems almost hypocritical that with one hand we swat & the other we shoot!! You've dressed it up nicely. Like the effect in the WA shot with the deep blue backdrop. I think this guy should thank you - he never looked so good! :-)))

I must commend you on your resistance not to swat. I probably would have if it entered my kitchen.
Great close up especially on the flower. I know how hard it is to shoot these little things, as they take off just when you focus.

Lovely images, Japie. Baie mooi. Ek dink net die insek het die verkeerde naam gekry - nl 'n vlieg. Hy moes eerder 'n "sit" genoem word want hy sit altyd waar hy nie moet sit nie!!
