Temporary capture

December 14, 2018

A live fruitfly is temporarily held captive in raindrop on spiders web. I was looking at the web when the fly got caught and it struggled to free itself. I managed to capture on 6 or so frames before the fly freed itself. A single image with off camera speedlight. If you look closely you can see the garden vegetation in the raindrop :)

There is a melting there. I don't know if bug is merging with the drop of water, or the drop is changing in a bug. I love that detail of legs magnified by the drop (lens effect).
