  • I love this shot!  Can you share how you got it? 
Simply a matter of being in the right place at the right time.... I had been watching this robber Fly leave & return to this same perch as I was trying to get a good profile of it (already had a frontal shot). In the course of trying to get a profile shot, the second Fly appeared & was "dive bombing" (or is it photo bombing ?) the one on the perch. I shoot with an older manual focus 105mm F2.8 3rd party macro lens & a matching ring/point light. I had already focused on the perch & just waited for both to be in the frame at the same time... Got some other shots of them both, but this was the best...ISO 200, 1/200th SS & F16 were the shooting parameters on a Nikon D300...
