 I was trying out my new macro lens with the help of a fly I hit the shutter button at the right time as he flew off. I use a Canon 60d with a Tokina AT-X 100mm f/2.8 Pro D. The image Fly-Away.jpgwas shot at 1/2500 at f 2.8 ISO 200 with a Neewer ring flash.

WOW! This is cool! It almost looks unreal, like it is cartoon character.

Great shot!
I love that the fly’s shadow is also in the frame.
It’s interesting that even 1/2500 sec. could not freeze the fly’s wings.

Mandrake I think it also have something to do with the fact that it is a macro shoot and camera in this case is very close to the subject. As we know: the closer you are to the subject, the faster shutter speed you will need to free it. So still 1/2500 did’t freeze them even a bit. WOW!
