This entry was posted on May 19, 2012 by Lemony. It was filed under Insect and was tagged with Fly, Insect, Nature Photography, Panasonic Lumix LX5, Photography.
It is a very good shot. Unlike other photographer’s insects,
this Fly seems still live and not came to a Honey drop, therefore
she could fly away in any moment = your patience was well
Same time it is an amazement that Lumix can do this and
big annoyance why do I need to use my heavy camera 😀

Thank you for your comment, yoshizen. I have to say, I have been so impressed with the Lumix, and it is incredibly compact. I highly recommend it. 🙂

As some of their cameras using Leiz lens,
I’ve been thinking to buy though, they got
too many models —– I couldn’t figured out
which one 🙂

Thank you, nia. I’ve fallen so far behind in visits and comments. I’m eager to stop by and see what you’ve been up to!
WOW WOW WOW what an amazing shot…think I will buy that camera myself haha

Thank you so much, Joanna! You know what surprises me about some of these shots is that I take them without any sort of support (tripod, monopod…). The Lumix LX-5 is an absolute GEM. You wouldn’t be disappointed with it. It’s a a great investment and so handy.

Thank you, Bente. I love this little being. He just cried out to have his portrait made. 🙂

Beautiful – I love how you captured the eyes.
May 19, 2012 at 8:24 pm
Thank you, Richard. I love the eyes, too, and wish they were a bit brighter in the photo.

This is a beautiful photo, Melanie! It is so easy for so many to just shoo these pesky little guys away without taking the time to appreciate their beauty and complexity. I’m very glad you’re among those of us who do!

Thank you so much, Gary. Yes, I think flies are such fascinating insects. They have a wonderful form and such interesting colors. I’m glad this one sat still long enough for me to capture his fabulous little self.

Absolutely exquisite shot Melanie..
May 19, 2012 at 10:49 pm
I’m so happy you like it, Helen. I just know you must have had some great posts lately. I’ll look forward to catching up.

This fly is fantastic. I can hardly believe he’s real. You’ve outdone yourself again. The bokeh…to die for. Ah… 🙂

I don’t know how you did it…but you made that fly look beautiful 🙂
May 20, 2012 at 3:28 am
Wow and simply wow!!
I love the colors and the detail!!
MAybe you coud try some light in the eyes, so that we can see a bit more of them; aside that, I love this picture Melanie!

color, detail and placement. Great shot!

Thank you, Todd!
A really wonderful shot. Shows that real beauty can be found even in the most common insects.
May 22, 2012 at 6:29 am
Thank you. That’s part of what I was aiming for here.

While I was out in my yard this morning I saw an interesting fly on a leaf that remained still for quite some time. I was half tempted to run in and grab my camera, but then I though back to all the times I tried this type of shot and ended up with something less than desirable. But what you captured here is especially nice!
I may have to consider the Lumix at some point.

Thank you, Rick. I keep trying with the flies. I wish the eyes were a bit brighter with this one. Yesterday I got a close-up of one that was looking straight at me. I haven’t had a chance to upload it yet to see how crisp the photo is (that’s always the key, in the end, isn’t it…). I really, really like the Lumix. I’m really training myself with it, and I don’t have to use anything with it (no filters, no extra lenses…): it’s just me and the Lumix, and whatever I find out there. By the way, I found some interesting white slime of some sort yesterday (at the base of a tree). I got a shot of it, but haven’t identified it yet. If I don’t end up posting it, I may just email it to you for fun. 😀
