taken (once again) on the balkony of my dear friend ~polgara. discovered that fly and took maybe 30 close ups of that insect. it was like the fly posed for me. :) everyone knows that song "sitting on the dock of the bay", or at least heard of the title... thought an adaption of that title would work nicely here. :)

so then... happy viewing :)

whoahoho

that is a FANTASTIC SHOT!

the colros of the fly, and the leaves are great, and so is the focus. the composition is great too, the fact that the fly is on the right makes it look like he wants more, hes off to a journey of some kind or soemthing

as always, amazing photography with excellent colours and good depth =) you wouldn't believe that there is so much detail on a fly :D
usually I don't like these insects, but this looks really great. how much postwork did you do on this? =) or is it original?

Sehr sehr schönes Foto... wirklich...
Die Blätter sehen fabelhaft aus vorallem das sie verschieden scharf zu sehen sind... das es nun ne Schmeißfliege ist, die du fotografieren musstest... naja ich find sie nicht so schön, aber trotzdem eine sehr detailierte und fantastische Aufnahme von ihr.
Alles in allem ein Foto, was man sich gerne anschaut, weil einen die Farben wirklich fesseln können :)

Beautiful capture. I like the way the fly is precariously perched on the leaf. The colours are very livid and striking. The lighting is perfect!

And the shot is just so clean! I love it. Even the border is well done and the text and signature are aptly placed!

I really like this. It's amazing how lovely that fly is, considering how disgustingly ugly they are during the everyday trials and tribulations of man's life vs. bug. While the picture is very good, it doesn't feel like the focus is completely on the bug, as it perhaps should be. Maybe it's just my eyes. =p Either way, very good. :)
