Blowing Bubbles II

Shot at 4x with a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens.

This is something that a lot of flies do -the prevailing theory is that exposing their stomach contents to the air aids in digestion.

WOW! How did you get the fly to stay still long enough to shoot?

When they are occupied (blowing bubbles, eating, etc.) it's not too difficult to get close to them. If they aren't doing anything then they can put all their attention into "photographer avoidance" and I don;t get close ;)

this is like a portrait... of a fly! mad, love this shot. Macro is just a whole new world. Great capture, i like how you bother to learn about what's actually happening in your shots too. eg. learn a bit about flies
