Flies do what flies do

Sunshine’s Macro Monday #18

I was going around the garden filling the various bird baths and I spotted these flies doing what flies do. I like how the male was checking me out while he was “occupied” and the female was nonplussed either way.

It’s in the eye

Sunshine’s Macro Monday  – 11 and Kate’s Friday Fun: Reptile

To me macro is getting in close not just a whole flower but what’s inside or not just an small insect but perhaps their wing up or body so close that you can see ever so much. So today let’s get up close with an Eastern Water Dragon and see eye to eye.
