Been a while since I posted, due to other commitments – but now for some catch up posts over the next few days/weeks. The macro photos taken here were shot back on the 19th May!
It’s a collection of flies ( including sawflies and damselflies).
First up this red fly that I almost managed to get in flight on my Canon MPE-65mm 1-5x macro lens.
I got better detail at a bigger magnification – when it posed briefly on leaf.
Next up a pair of Sawflies mating.
This dancefly seems to have damaged wings. Either that or they are not fully inflated ?
Then some of my favourite macro subjects – damselflies up close and personal! I love the detail in their eyes, and the poses they can assume. Firstly a common blue.
Then a selection of this nicely posing Azure.
Finally the ants – with some aphids for company.
All images taken on a Canon 5D MkiV with a Canon MPE-65mm 1-5x macro lens. Flash lit.
