In the details
I very much did not intend to take a macro shot of an insect today. I had initially been hoping for another interesting sky to photograph, but it was overcast here this morning. I did wander into Bath (which was surprisingly busy given that the kids are now back at School) but couldn't find a suitable street image that I was happy with.
So instead, I have reverted to type and here is a close up macro shot of a hoverfly at rest. I thought at one stage that it might be dead, as it showed no sign of movement as I gradually crept closer and closer with the macro lens. I was just wondering if it was worth setting up the tripod and having a go at a proper focus stack when a wasp also expressed an interest - the moment it got too close the hoverfly became very alert and then took off at speed.
