Very good shot, clear and crisp. I am learning as I go, how did you get such a close up shot? It's Macro shots I am interested in and experimental and unusal ones. Any advise would be greatfully appreciated. On my site there are only a few shots at the moment, as I only have a Nikon S1 but I am learning with a Canon EOS 350 now.

@Jon Leonard: Thank you, this was taken using a Tamron 90mm Macro lens (a superb macro lens). I also added a couple of close-up filters so I could get in really close. Beware though, because of the very close subject-to-camera distance, it's important to use a very small aperture as the depth of field is so short at that range. This will give you a very slow shutter speed so it helps if the subject doesn't move!
great macro - focus and DoF are perfect

Absolutely awesome. I appreciate the info you shared about your lens, filter and aperture advise. I am learning too! Thanks for the inspiration.

Cool shot, but what I don't get is how you got this little fellow to stay stock still for the 30 seconds indicated by your exif data.

@Twelvebit: What can I say, he was a very patient fly!!! Actually I found him dead on the window sill and propped him up for the shot!!! My wife wasn't impressed!
Awesome close up!
