    Well, sort of. One of my macros, large fly, got featured on
    today's Daily Deviations at the DeviantArt website where I have a
    gallery of some of my better photos. There's about 48million,
    and rising, pieces of art on that site. One of the moderators
    was blown away by that shot and some others in my gallery that
    she decided to make a feature of it - among 30 odd other pieces
    of art.

    Anyway, it's exciting for me :)

    Here's the DD page for the relevant day:

    My pic is about half way down.

    It also comes up randomly on the bottom of their main front page:

    Here's my DA gallery:

    Dunno how Troy did it, but a young lady friend of mine took a pic of a
    fly 12-18 months ago which was *perfect*. She was using a simple
    pocket-sized POS camera (I forget the brand/model) and when I asked
    her if she'd done it by taking countless shots of the Dipterous model
    and picking out the best of them, she agreed. :)

    Cheers, Phred.

    Hi Phred. That shot was taken with my Canon 30D, 100mm macro
    lens, 430EX flash and my patent-pending 3 litre milk bottle
    diffuser[1] :)

    I just checked my RAW images, and that was one of only 2 photos I
    took of that fly. The other is here:

    Not from my Macs (my usual work stations) but I could get to it from
    the PC on the same network? The PC actually runs the internet
    connection..... but I dunno why it won't display across the network to
    the macs? I will investigate.....

  9. Hi Troy, Great shot and well done.

    I had a similar thing yesterday. Looking at my most popular pictures on
    Flickr a picture of the moon in the daytime was over 350 views. I
    checked the stats and it had been getting hits from this mob.


    I was pretty happy with that.

    That's a nice shot. Great colour. Haven't seen that site
    before, might have a browse later.
