    very nice makro, the fly looks like a sky-diver. Yes and nice and fitting background, you already explained how it came to this. I agree with you, quite often, you need a bit of luck.
    best wishes Pete

    an excellent macro capture with great definition and
    beautiful bokeh ... fascinating colour reflections on
    the fly's wings !!!
    best regards,

      Thank you for your comments. Getting the color on the fly's wings was just luck in accidentally getting a Bee Baum flower in the background at the right angle.
