[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Casually sitting in my camping chair on a hot summers day, I was fascinated by a fly sitting on my hand. With my left hand I slowly picked up my camera and with an awkward grip starting shooting.

I think what made this possible was the high ISO setting and excellent lighting.

Another lovely image.
Hello Thilo,
The Macro F2.8 USM also helped.
It is "ACTUALLY" sucking up something from your skin!!!
Greetings from Canada from Mario.

Hello Thilo

Great macro despite you shooted it with one hand. Excelent details, nice sharpness, very nice clarity. Thanks for sharing.



Body parts should avoid.Good enhance of saturation, but bg not satisfactory.It's noisy.
