Quit now, Mark. You can't get any better.
Can you ??
Mark your photos just keep getting better.
Nice !! Awesome photo Mark ! When I am browsing the Gallery I look for photos that are sharp, well composed and seem to fly (no pun intended :) right off the page at you. Yours definately did.

Well Mark, it's hard to love these little guys but you bring us a close as possible for sure !! ........................... Maybe we could dresss him up a bit - Black tuxedo or something to make him more appealing ........................ (-;
I Agree! Very nice photo!!
Replies to comments Thanx all for the kind words.
These guys are quite common at certain times of the year, such as right now. I went outside into my yard this morning and shot a few. They were pretty much readily available although not always into posing for me.
Concerning getting better, I will keep trying. A new camera (which I am beginning to seriously consider) should lead to some substantial improvements.
Scamming You?? Are you serious Walter? The photo was taken with the fly on the corner of a building covered by white vinyl siding. The sun was to my back. The shadow falls on the other side of the building. You can see the beginning of it by the legs. Sorry to hear that you think I "worked this sucker over so bad in PS that it no longer looks like a photo". I hope you have kinder words for the 26 other flies in this portfolio (or the 100+ images I have posted at photo.net). I figured I would go to your portfolio's and see how a picture like this should look. Unfortunately though, you haven't uploading anything yet (other than one photo that appears "unavailable").
Are You Scamming Us? Being a naturally suspicious person, I look at this image and I'm thinking "This ain't no photograph". And then I see that you used a flash and I'm ask'n "Where the heck is the shadow from the flash?". I think you either worked this sucker over so bad in PS that it no longer looks like a photo, or else it wuzzn't no photo from the git go.
Geez. This is so good. You should really have the POW some time soon. As a professor, perhaps you would like to share a little of your technique. Do you set the Pentax 50 mm to its smallest aperture and tape it to the G2? Do you use a tripod? How do you avoid motion blur? Your fans want to know...
This is just a fantastic image. I particularly like the light background. Do you have much difficulty finding these insects ?
Fabulous details here - best in the folder as far as details are concerned... Yet, a little regret about the background. Why not try uploading a version were the background would be a lot brighter overall - close to white...?

Simply wonderful. This is some of the very best macro photography I have ever seen. Your galleries are outstanding.
