  • Dangling

    This fly was breathing its last gasps having been trapped by a spider's thread so it gave me an opportunity to practice off-camera flash. With the little flash unit on the camera as a commander and fill-in, I hand-held a 600R off to the left and controlled it from the camera using RC flash (optical remote control).

    Since I've just sold my 60mm macro (was hardly using it), I took this with the Sigma 30mm f1.4 plus the Raynox DCR 250 converter. It's a great combo for occasional macro work.

    Have you got the 40-150mm F2.8? If so, try it with a couple of the cheap auto extension tubes, that works well for occasional close-ups too.

      It affords me great pleasure to see a fly so suspended at the end of its tether, especially in such rapturous detail.

        Nice image. Lots of diffusion on the flash I guess
