Just flies

All of these fly shots are from a visit to Blashford Lakes last Sunday, including a couple of mosies. Apparently mosquito (Culicidae) means “little fly” in Spanish. This time I exclusively used the TTL mode on the Olympus FS-STF22 twin flash.

Here are the mosquitoes, the second being quite hairy

This stayed around awhile allowing for a 2 image hand held stack.
