    Disabled fly

    This fly was on the sun-warmed wall in the garden, but quite low down so awkward to reach - thank goodness for vari-angle screens on 70D's!

    Taken as usual with the LAOWA Venus 60mm, what I like about this lens is it's ability to allow good crops without much loss of detail. This is the full body shot - I did crop and rotate an edit for a bit closer detail.

    Exif:Camera Model: Canon EOS 70D
    Exposure Time: 1/200
    ISO equiv: 100
    Exposure: shutter priority (semi-auto)
    Creator: Paul Iddon

    Nice one Paul ... . Very sharp on the eyes and head. It does seem to be somewhat lacking in the required number of legs.

    Thanks lads - here is the crop and rotation - the Venus lens is quite good when the focus is on the spot...

    Thank you Katrina - I know most bugs are ugly but they do have a fascination for looking at! :)

    It does look like it should topple over at any moment Paul! Amazing detail in the eye.
