BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

TOP OF THE TEASEL

Mimic FlyMimic flies are fun to photograph. If I had my macro lens with me, I would have concentrated on the insect but as I didn’t I took the shot I could. I rarely carry more than one lens when I go out so if I see something worth taking I’ll give it a go.

  2. This works really well, so don’t regret not taking the other lens; most of the time I only carry one lens, albeit a zoom; if I’m in the car, sometimes its two cameras with a lens on each. Very good picture that benefits from all of the negative space. 🙂

  6. Nice work ‘with the gear you have’. I never knew the name of those little ‘buggers’.

  7. I love these little flies(also called hover flies or syrphids, I think) with those prism effects on the wings. Looks like someone else was hanging out below.

  10. Whatever lens it was, it turned out beautiful. Haven’t heard the word “teasel” for a long time. I don’t think it grows around here.
