Small Colorful Flies - Macro

One of the reasons I love the EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM is that you can put a little distance between your lens and a skittish critter and still get 1:1. Most of these were shot with a Rebel T4i and all are quite tiny.

 

Long Legged Fly, female. These flies eat aphids, so they are the good guys 🙂

Blue Bottle Fly. These guys eat nectar, but their larvae feed on carrion and are sometimes vital in determining the time of death at crime scenes.
