Beauty in Unexpected Places


  1. It's a fly, Katherine. Even with bits of Jeff Goldblum, it's still a fly.

    Top photo though. Class even !

  2. Perfectly formed and its own way quite beautiful... Thank you.

    Oooh, it's a beeeyoootful Greenbottle! I love it. Gorgeous photo!

    I've never been able to capture one of those, they fly away too fast, usually.

  4. Wow - Kathrine, I'd be needing a pretty big shoe to take out that one! (just kidding!) Look at the colors on that guy!!

  5. It is pretty amazing you got that shot.

  6. Quick, where's my fly swat?

  7. Wow...I've never looked at a fly quite like this before. I'm curious as to the type of lens you used.

  8. Sam, I used a 100x zoom, bright light, lots of pixels, then cropped it closely. You can't get too close to those fellas as they zoom away...
    I have a Canon EOS 400D.
