Episyrphus balteatus / marmalade hoverfly

in photography •  last year


the marmalade hover fly is only 9 - 12mm long
you can approach them very easy if you make sure you don't cast any shadow on them.

And you don't want shadows on your subject anyway .

camera used : Sony A6000
lens used : reversed Rokkor 28mm 3.5 manual focus no tripod
settings f 8 iso 125 1/125
