Thanks all. I get started with my macro lens and I can't put it down! Did you notice the two teeny-tiny drops of water on the left eye of the fly?
Yes, I noticed for sure. I considered getting into macro at one point and decided I don't have the patience and it's too hard to get back up off the ground.

I'm always impressed with good macro shots. :)

Very nice, well done!

I didn't think you could use 7D Mk II or any crop camera to take pictures like these. Thought it had to be a full frame camera. 8)

These are stunning. Would you mind sharing what shutter speed / aperture these were shot at?

The EXIF data is included in every image except the first. For example, the last image was shot at f/11 @ 1/200, with the EF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro and flash.

Yes, I agree with that getting off the ground thing! It gets harder every year.

Using a flash with macro makes a world of difference. I rarely shoot anything like this anymore an off camera flash in a small softbox.
