    Two hoverfly's

    Just a couple of hoverfly’s from today, I’ve been too busy to get out and do much shooting. Both images have not been cropped… I used my new Canon 430EX speedlight and a LumiQuest softbox for the flash (just messing around with the new flash).

    Love that first one, Copy!

    Excellent choice in lighting direction. Nice soft shadows and the detail on the fly and leaf are exquisite!

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone. S/W, I used the Sigma 150mm macro lens, tubes, and Canon 2X TC.
