Danke schön.
Ja, da war der Hintergrund endlich mal weit weg genug, um ihn unscharf zu kriegen...

Sehr schönes Close Up - die Haare sind fantastisch, auch die Spiegelung in den Augen...

Ja, das Tierchen hat brav stillgehalten - zumindest zeitweise - und mich einen Haufen Fotos machen lassen. :)

Flies are pretty interesting creatures when you see them close up, aren't they?

Great idea :thumsup:.
The only problem is we've got a bit of a communication problem.
Oh, and there's another one: The fly's flying gear won't fit me! :D

whyy? tell them you wouldn't have to spend money on train, bus or fuel!

instant transportation! no money...unless the fly eats people :O

:lmao: You sure the fly would give me free rides?
And think of the costs for fuel - a fly that size sure needs a large amount of food!

Anything is the problem.
A fly of that size is bound to eat something you don't want it to eat.

An incredibly complicated creature when you think about it... How clever of you to shot it when it's quiet (its hair are amazing) Bravo Kathrin :)

:nod: They always remind me of some intricate mechanism, like a clockwork for example. And they have hair in places you'd never expect it! :giggle:

Simple !

The lighting is coming from below .. and is "white" a bit like "Limelights" :)

Oh my the focus is fantastic! We can see all those tiny little hairs...this shot somehow makes that little fly beautiful and intriguing, quite different to our normal opinion of him. ;) :heart:

Thanks for the lovely comment Gaby! :hug:
If you look closely, there is hardly any insect that isn't beautiful and fascinating in its own way, all those intricate details...but then I'm a known bugophile. ;)

I didn't either until I had an entomology class and got to look at them through a stereomicroscope. Been fascinated ever since!
