Scaramouche! Scaramouche! Will you do the fandango?

“Silhouett-o” (House Fly Silhouette) Nikon D300, 105mm F/2.8G Macro, F/5.6, 1/320s, -0.3EV, ISO 400, Color Efex Pro Bi-color Gradient and Vignette Filters

Eh, doesn’t really matter to me… πŸ™‚


  1. Wicked cool! And YES I will do the fandango with you anytime. πŸ˜‰

  2. Thunderbolts & lightning! Very, very frightening…!

    So, is the moon created with the vignette filter? Very cool.

    • Galileo! (Galileo) Galileo! (Galileo) Galileo, figaro! πŸ™‚

      I liked the image as shot, but knew it wasn’t quite there. So, yes, a simple vignette with black to create the moon and then, thinking it needed a punch of color, a bi-color filter. Immediately, I knew I had something. Thanks, Chris! πŸ™‚

  3. ” ….. I don’t know why it’s a silhouetto of a fly …. perhaps I’ll try … perhaps I’ll try …..”

  4. This is SO COOL!!! πŸ™‚

  5. Wow, look at that DETAIL!! Really cool shot!

    • Thank you, Michaela! And it’s just a house fly – go figure! (Amazing what inspiration one can find in the attic, isn’t it?) πŸ™‚

  6. Good shot, but yuck to flies.

    • LOL! Thanks, Lynn. Aw, they’re not so bad locked in the attic… πŸ™‚

  7. Brilliant!
    Now I have to find my macro lens.
    –And a fly πŸ™‚

    • Ha! Somehow I doubt you will have trouble locating a fly… getting them to pose properly, now that’s the tricky part! πŸ™‚

  8. ‘Magnifico-o-o-o!’ (popped over via Fundamental Jelly’s place.)

  9. OMG, that is one hairy fly.

  10. Send a bolt of lightening, very very frightening…

    Awesome. Looks like it’s posing in front of a full moon. Too cool!

    • Thunderbolt and lightening, very very frightening. It’s a classic – have to get the lyrics right!

      I have control over house flies, dontcha know? πŸ˜‰

      Thanks, Amber!

        Ooops I am sooo busted! hahaha

  11. Holy Macro!!! πŸ™‚

  12. Someone stole my intended comment here : magnifico-o-oh-o-o! πŸ˜‰
    A favorite song around here..of course!
    You must have a way with all creatures great and small getting them to pose for you.

    Bealzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me…… (commence head-banging ala Wayne’s World)

    • LOL! Isn’t it amazing how the right title can totally make an image??

      These guys were flying all over the (drafty) attic windows. I let them tire themselves out a bit and coaxed one into a spot that would work. It is the post-processing (vignette and bi-color filter) that really made this image ‘sing’ (pun intended!) πŸ™‚

      Party on, Garth! πŸ˜€
