Nice one, Penfold. I like this kind of fly.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

Is that shot straight out of the camera with no post processing?

I'm afraid it was cropped and I very quickly played with the unsharp mask. If I remember rightly, and I was a little hurried when I done it, I think I used some digital noise reduction as well.

I still prefer the pictures as they come with as little fiddling around as possible, although I do use cropping and exposure adjustment a fair bit (as well as straightening, since I seem to have one leg shorter than the other, on occasion . :lol: )

I know the feeling about straightening, my pictures seem to be 1 degree out from vertical every now and then and need a small rotation anticlockwise :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I didn't get to see many insects yesterday at the WWT, which came as a bit of a surprise. i did manage to get these two shots though.
