Sunshine’s Macro Monday #18

On days when I cannot get out on the trails for a hike, it is fun to go through some of my older pics and compare them to what I am doing today.  Sometimes, I am surprised that I got an occasional decent shot.  Often, I am humbled by what I thought was a “good” shot.

My entry for this week is a green bottle fly shot back in 2015, when I first starting playing with macro photography.  Yes, for me photography is enjoyed way too much to consider it work.
