Nicely caught John, I really like the second with the less distracting background.

Two really good one John, but agree with Rye, the background colour of #2 pips it for me.

Oooh I missed these two .I agree with Dee and Rye....the first is very nice  but the second image is excellent  in my opinion. The paler uniformity of the background really  isolates the   fly  brilliantly and also serves as a brilliant foil to show the latticework veins on those gossamer wings .  Aesthetically pleasing too .... not always achievable with macro insect work . The focus looks spot on ... what lens were you using this time ....?

Two good shots, but number 2 is definitely the better one.

Thanks all for the comments all.   The first shot is side on with foliage in the BG.  The second shot is from above and the BG is the flags on the patio which are less busy of course.

Polly taken with the X-T2 and the lens used is the Fuji XF60mm f2.4.  For a while I considered swapping it for the more recent 80mm but with the focus speed improvements that the X-T3 provides I'm less inclined to bother.  The image quality of the 60mm has always been excellent.  It's also a good portrait lens focal length and consequently for the little that I do, it means that I haven't been tempted by one of the XF56mm offerings.

Well it’s a fabulous study ... and whilst I am always interested in what lense and settings has been used etc .... kudos always to the skills of  the photographer ... it’s a real cracker  of a picture.
