    Smile Fruit flies

    Gathering of fruit flies are so funniest. They also need their own territories in order to collect oil from flowers. Just have a look.

    That is a cool shot. I did not know they needed their own spaces. lol. How did you get so close to get the shots? I really like the next to last shot where they each are on their own petal.

    Cheers,

    Those pictures are fantastic, Zainal Abidin. The one with a fly on each petal is brilliant and so are those extreme close-ups. You take very good pictures (and probably have a great camera!)

    Thank You.For the first two photos I used Nikon Macro Lens therefore it can magnified the smaller object. I have 3 different camera Nikon D70, Olympus C-40 zoom and Sony Cybershot all more tha 4 years ago but still very good as long as we take care them.
