Like the fly on the wall

fly macro wall pl 1.jpg


Annoying, buzzing little things! Always there when they are not needed and always trying to get to your food and drinks (see gif a little lower). Lately even my cat is not interested in them. They probably don't taste very well either (she prefers moths now... diva..).

But damn they look good on photos! Just look at this guy (or gal). Hairy back and legs, huge eyes and mustache. A true mafioso :)

I found this one warming up on the wall after a cool morning.
The blue and green colour is pretty amazing on it too. Who would have thought they can be actually pretty :)

A little bit later I spotter another one feeding on a Calendula flower. But since it was already warmer and they got their energy back, it was a bit harder to get. They get lazy and easier to shoot when it's cold.

I left best for last :)

I did see flies with such cool eyes on other users photos, but I have never seen it myself. I was not even aware that they do live in Poland.
Of course it can happen that they are very common, but with bare eyes it is har to see the spots anyway.

I missed the focus on this one - enjoy the pretty flower center then ;p

I just remembered I did some silly drawing a while ago with them. Here is a reminder :p

Photos super!
I don't like flies either, and they make me nervous with howling importunity!
But, in the photo they are incomparable, very photogenic or do you make them like that? 🤭😂

flower flies are clean flies, different from house flies which like dirty places, flower flies only suck flower juice, and their shapes and colors are also beautiful and unique, aiming for them With a macro lens it will show the details, I like the fly that you share, it's just that the yellow reflection of the flower slightly interferes with the color of the fly, your shot is cool my friend.

Wait a minute, macro?
Does this mean you'll start shoving the lens in the face of every bug?

Yay, I cant wait!
Tell Mrs. Fly from above that it's time for waxing. :p

You were lucky they let you photograph them. They usually are quick to run when sensing danger.

This is very cool, this fly looks very clear.
And the one above the flower is also very beautiful.

How did you manage to photograph a fly so beautifully? Was she sitting and waiting for you? Or what was it?
