Hi Chi
Again, one of those super macros that make me want to grab a paper bag as I feel the early warning signs of hyperventilation coming on.
I mean, is there no limit to you and that Sigma macro lens. I still believe Sigma should start paying you for using their equipment (that is if they're not already doing so, chuckle).
There is really not much more to say about this technical perfect shot. The photo speaks for itself (more than a 1,000 words) as it is brilliant in all aspects.
Very well done and TFS.

Hey Chi,
What an amazing shot of these two flies. Very sharp in all aspects, Absolutely great detail, the best fly photo I have seen...

Hello Chi,
Amazing close-up and matting action, like always in your photos, details and colours are incredibles. very good composition and BG.

Hi Chi,
This is an amazing shot! The detail is fantastic but the textures you've captured are really quite amazing. Perfect colour and light, I think some people will find the DOF shallow but for me this adds so much depth. Fantastic work, a great shot.

This photo is awesome, It is so sharp and microscopic detailed that I can see every single hair on the fly ( not that I like that they're grose) but I had to laugh all the time because the uper one is standing on lower ones eyeballs, it's so funny! Really an amazing photo! Way to go mate!

Incredible detail Chi, the exposure is right on the money with this one. The colors are dynamite too. Well done. :)

Hello Chi,
I must say you have captured great details and sharpness. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
