A staring competition

I'm always fascinated by their many eyes. I'm not sure what he is sitting on, but it was something stuck to the grass.
What a cool awesome shot!

May I ask what lens? Your process in post? This is just awesome.
June 10th, 2015  
This is stellar. How do you create such clear, clean images?
June 10th, 2015  
Outstanding clarity... fav!

@chewstories @taffy Thanks ladies, I was just in the right place at the right time. Lens is Canon 100mm f2.8L, post processing just a little colour saturation in PS, cloning a few bits of dirt, and a slight crop.

Fantastic shot. How do you manage to get such clarity. Fav

@888rachel I have the same lens. Wondering about aperture...Do you always shoot at 2.8?
June 10th, 2015  
Jen
@888rachel Also, i so appreciate your info. Thanks again for sharing. :)
June 10th, 2015  
@chewstories Hi Jen, no, I don't always shoot at 2.8. I find that the dof is too narrow sometimes. This shot is at f4.0, and still has a very narrow focus. If I have something bigger like a frog or dragonfly, I might try for f8 + if the light is good, and I can keep the shutter speed to at least 1/250.

Instant Fav! Top shot once again Rachel! I have the same lens and it is wonderful but I am sure I would never get close enough to a fly to get this quality of shot! I think that you hypnotize them! Lol!
June 10th, 2015  
A great shot.
June 10th, 2015  
The complementary colours and elements of composition almost make it an abstract - but those eyes, Wow.
