Bubble blowing fly


Well-known Member
I got this greenbottle fly blowing a bubble yesterday.
Apparently they do this as part of their digestive process, almost like chewing the cud.

Nikon D50, Tamron 90mm macro, 1:1, Natural light 1/80s, f16, ISO200, Tripod mounted.

It's shots like this that make people want to try macro photography.

A awesome image, even if the subject is disgusting!

Well done. :)
