When a new camera lens arrives you just have to put it on your camera and go take photos. The only creature in my garden willing to pose for my 20mm Zhongyi 4.5x super macro budget lens was this particularly dozy fly. Possibly the 160 km hours whipping through town at the moment may have moved on many of the other potential subjects. I’ll need to do a bit of experimenting . . . but so far I like it. This shot at ISO 1000, f5.6, 1/200 sec.
