    1. Thanks, Anna! I shoot with a Canon 450D and three lenses: 18-55mm, 55-250mm and 100-400mm. Since I don’t have any macro lenses yet, I make do with technique rather than equipment. Both of these were taken at 250mm.

    1. That’s what I was just thinking, Jain! I had never noticed foot-pads on fly feet before. Maybe because I’ve never had such a great close-up look, as Jason has given us.

    1. Thanks, Christine! Nothing in nature goes without notice from me, so I’m right there with you on appreciating the marvelous complexity of even the smallest of critters. Everything I see gives me something new to appreciate.
