Some recent mixed bug shots. First 2 shots strong natural light taken at Highdown gardens Worthing with my Sony A6000/ sigma 105mm OS.
Last shots taken in my garden using full flash with my 5Dmk2/MPE-65/430Ex flash rig.
Most of the shots have been focus stacked using zerene.

Ready for battle- a male Tephritid fly Chetostoma curvinerve. These have territorial shoving matches with other males a bit like sumo wrestling matches. The males lock those facial bristles on each other and then try to shove the other fly off the leaf..
