Fly


Jul 13.

This is no ordinary fly… it’s a tiny tiny fly. It was just a theeveen** under 2mm long. I took this using the 75mm-300mm with a reversing ring and my 50mm on the end. The depth of field is extremely shallow, but that might be because I’m doing something wrong. I’ll just need to take some time and play around with the setup a little. This is the quick and dirty approach to Macro Photography, anyone considering giving it a go, you’ll need to get your hands on a decent “real” macro lens.

**I may not have spelled it correctly, but for anyone wondering what a Theeveen is: “A theeveen is the smallest unit of measurement known to man” – Eanna Carroll, 2007.
