Fly _

A late-season dandelion puff offers a landing spot for a small house fly. It was on the cool side, and my fly subject wasn’t super-energetic, and the longer working distance also did not cause any spooking issues. My biggest struggle with this shot was fighting a light breeze that shifted the bloom–meaning a slower shutter speed would result blur, and that light breeze changed the correct focal distance! But this frame is sharp right where I want it! Optical Stabilizer was activated to overcome camera shake. 1/80, F5.6 ISO 400. Canon EOS 5D, and Sigma EF-610 DG Super E-TTL, angled downward for macro capture.
