[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's a long-legged fly. I've observed that this fly is very fast. It's so fast that it can move between the split second period from the preflash of the camera to opening of the shutter. When it moves, it does not travel far but simply lands on the same leaf or nearby leaf. It loves to stay on wide leaves.

This is cropped but the actual magnification was about 2.5x. In addition to the Kenko tubes, a Kenko 1.4x teleconverter was used.

Irridencent green, one of my favorite colours ;)
Nice closeup Rey!
The detail is fantastic, lucky you were able to get a shot of this quick
moving fly.
Well done Janice

Hallo Rey,
beautiful colours and reflections on the fly's wings and eyes. Great sharpness and composition.
