Wandering around the yard with my camera this weekend I came across these flies having a very good time.
There are a lot of flies after all the rain we've had lately. I think they take a moment between the hard showers to make more flies.
I'm starting to get a bit better at really close macro, however, I'm still under-estimating the aperture that I need to get the depth-of-field that will look the best.
This was at f8 and since the ant's body wasn't perfectly in the plane, its butt is blurry.
