As close as I can get to the robber

Robberflies are usually quite brave and do not get disturbed even if you are close to them. This in particular, did not mind me being six cm away from it! However, had to be cautious and moved in slowly while it was sitting on a dried coconut tree branch, got close to him and got a few shots. Clicked with a Sony A6000 and a Nikon 35-70 lens. Used an inexpensive macro filter, diy diffuser for flash. The down side being that this lens does not hold good contrast/details and something spoils colours and has a magenta cast in all images.. at the moment, I use Daylight wb so that it is reduced by a bit and then try to correct as much as I can in pp.
