    Once the caterpillars make an impression on the fruits skin there's no stopping the fruit fly.

    Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana!

    Nice macro shots - well done.

    Outstanding photos! Fruit flies are tiny, just to state the obvious. I took a quick look at your website and you obviously have a talent for photographing very small things! Realizing it's the photographer and not the equipment, what kind of setup so you use to get that level of magnification and good lighting?

    Thanks for comment. It's simple really, and half way down my second sig link you'll see pix of the basic setup. Some of theses ones were with the Panasonic G1, some the FZ50. Both with achromat/s on and flash snooted and diffused.
