I really don't know what this is but it was kind enough to land on my towel and hold still for me to take a picture.

Do you mind if I use this as an example of small depth of field for *ThePhotoCritic's guide to giving good critiques? I'm finally putting photos in it

Not at all. Please do! :nod:

i love the contrast of the green fly
against the highly textured towel. i dont
think it would have worked at all as well if it
been on a untexture material, i really like
how some parts of the fly are sharp and at
the same time some parts of the towel are
sharp. really good macro :heart:

You're right, I guess the towel gives it a special note because in itself it would be worth a macro shot already. Combined with the fly it's basically a macro insect in a macro world...

Das Bild habe ich in Spanien gemacht, etwa eine Autostunde südlich von Sevilla am Strand von Matalascañas. Aber ob das jetzt die berühmte spanische Fliege ist, weiß ich auch nicht... :D

Beautiful macro shot! I love the eyes! :)
saddogeyes's avatar
Yes, the eyes! They were actually the reason I doubted it was a simple fly but what do I know? I try to avoid any animal with more than four legs :giggle: And who knows, maybe flies from Seville just do look that way...

I have a friend with the same avoidance issue as you :giggle:
saddogeyes's avatar
Yeah... I just think four legs are more than enough for... well... anything... six are too many (and those antennas? What's that all about?) And these arachnoids? Show-offs! No creature needs that many legs...

:lmao: Or that many eyes for that matter!
saddogeyes's avatar
Oh... right... I had that successfully repressed... great, how am I supposed to sleep now? :sprint:
Oh well, wouldn't be the first night of deviantART related sleep deprivation (or DARSD... which is probably quite common in the community, I'm sure this'll hit the medical books some day). :D

Awesome! So now I'm expecting to see some great artwork from you in the morning due to your lack of sleep!

:)

Welcome to my friends list!

Yay! :boogie: Hope you don't mind me returning the favor... :+devwatch:
