Hi Paul this was the bug on the daffodil petal. It was a tiny critter and was lucky to get this shot but had to tone colours down in lightroom other wise the bug disappeared !

This is a new shot of a small hover-fly in my garden tonight this fly is totally harmless and it is only the colouration that makes people think it is a wasp.
I shot with my Canon 650D and sigma 105mm macro and off camera speedlight set at 1/32th (power) flash triggered with Viltrox OC-E3 cable. ISO 100, 1/200, f/11 #Fly   #canonphotography   #canon   #insectphotography   #insects   #naturephotography   #naturephotos   #nature   #macro   #macrophotography

Slow day today so decided to have a bit of fun with lightroom and Perfect effects eight.
Single shot with canon 650D, Sigma 105 macro lens 1 x speed light off camera 1/125, f/11, ISO 100. 
I decided to give this fly a bit of an HDR look.
Still like Perfect effects eight to have some quick fun and as it was (possibly still is) free download.
Lots of great imaging software like Photomatix Pro for HDR but can't decide yet if I want to spend the money as I don't do many bracketed shots at the moment to justify the cost. I know Photomatix Pro is not just HDR but I have so many software's at the moment I am getting spoilt for choice and need to master at least 1 first !

Taking time out in the garden this totally harmless hover-fly pollen 
hunting. This is a fly not a wasp or a bee just a harmless fly.
This is one of my shots for my personal challenge to capture insect wings frozen in flight. 
I used my Canon 650D with Sigma 105mm macro lens and my Speedlight of camera triggered with Viltrox OC-E3 cable. I set the flash at 1/16th power to freeze the wings. ISO 100, F11, 1/200 . I was able to get quite close to this fly but only got a couple of shots before it decided to move on.

Taking time out in the garden tonight after a hectic day at work and I saw this hoverfly darting around my pond so camera at hand I started taking shots for my personal challenge to capture insect wings frozen in flight. On inspection of a number of shots this fly was laying eggs around the plants in the pond.
I used my Canon 650D with Sigma 105mm macro lens and my Speedlight of camera triggered with a wireless trigger. I set the flash at 1/8th power to freeze the wings. ISO 100, F11. I was able to get quite close to this fly as it was more bothered about laying eggs than what I was doing.
