Went to a field opposite White Mill on Saturday. This runs along the river Stour and is a good place usually for a range of bugs, and later in the year dragon and damselflys.
Found some interesting flys including a wierd posed Nomada bee that attached itself to the leaf via it’s head.
All shots were taken on my MPE-65mm lens with flash.
This shot below of a Nomada bee is how they sleep I am told.
A hover fly posed nicely on some flowers…
A fly on the grass, I like the dark background on this, as I think it really sets the fly off.
One on my favourite flys for shooting – the dung fly.
A funky looking fly – a Male Chironomid Midge
As well as these single images I also took a macro panarama shot ( 2 shots which I later stitched togther on the PC).
