The Guardian of the Ties

Photograph by Juan Pixelecta, (portfolio)
Location: Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain (google maps) (wiki)
Date: July 4, 2010

Camera: Canon EOS 400D (Amazon)
Focal Length: 60mm (Macro)
Shutter Speed: 1/320 sec
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO/Film: 400

Note: Juan Pixelecta captured this gray fly on a mass of snails. The soft ambient lighting gives a calm sensation and a feeling that they fly is “calming” or “protecting” these snails. Very good little story and excellent capture!!

Tip: Macro photography allows you to get up close and personal with small world objects. Macro lenses allow you to focus on small subjects that you can’t normally focus on with standard DSLR lenses.
