Yellow suits me fine, right?

Posted by Magrat (Nordhausen, Germany) on 26 April 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

A tiny fly-or-whatever in a greenish metallic look was sitting in one of dozens of these yellow blossoms, crawling and scrabbling back and forth.

I tried to catch it with my additional close-up lens, it was quite a fight until I got a halfway decent picture!

The model contract is cancelled right now, my dear fly!!!
