Sunshine’s Macro Monday #37

This weekend I discovered the variety of flies!  As a follow up to my last post, we have all kinds of small flying creatures taking advantage of the sap on our prickly pear cactus.  And I must say, taking close ups on a cactus must be handled very carefully.  Fortunately I only had to pull one needle from my finger…

Today I am sharing a couple of the fly photos. I had no idea I could capture these details.  So strange and awesomely cool 😎

  3. Flies do make very good macro subjects if you can get close enough without scaring them off. You did good, Lisa! Great macros! 🙂
