Macro Monday – Have You Ever Seen A Fruit Fly Really?
Before I took a few photos of this fruit fly I had no idea what they looked like. They were just these annoying little dots floating around. And, it wasn’t easy to find one settled for long enough to get a picture. For reference that white surface is the edge of a plastic spoon. The reddish brown color put it into one of two groups but there are so many fruit flies that I could not make a firm identification. I think you would need a microscope. I take macro photographs primarily to aid in identifying creatures; or, just to see them for the first time. So, now I know a little better what a fruit fly looks like and it’s an interesting creature. Thank goodness I won’t have to chase one of these around until it stays still for a second ever again. That was a challenge for sure. I hope you enjoyed this look into the macro world!
Oh, I am insanely curious as to why my tags don’t work. Does anyone have an idea as to what I am doing wrong? The site is a little under documented for many details like this.
