Metallic Green

I did not come across any butterflies on my roadside wild flower tour, but I was pleased I had my macro lens with me.  I saw what appeared to be a regular fly, but when I looked closely it was a bright green colour.  There is nothing particularly beautiful about it.  However, its colour(s) and the fact that it was sitting inside a flower, made it a fun subject to shoot.  The details of its eye and the pollen stuck on its legs added to my interest.  Here is a selection of my macro shots as promised a fortnight ago.  To offer you a sense of scale, the flowers here are the size of a 100Fils coin (10p coin in the UK - size not exchange rate).

The fly I can understand getting close too, but the other guy is waaaaay too close for comfort! LOOOL!

I do love Macro Shots!

I love these macro shots! I can make out the littlest details of the flowers.

It was very small in real life :) I'm not that brave - believe me :)
