Profile of a blowfly


Having done a bit of work with my macro lens, I decided that 1:1 wasn’t enough. So I bought a filter that took magnification to 3:1. I quickly discovered why we focus stack. This three-shot stack was my first success, after many failures. This fly was eating and was incredibly cooperative.
