Plenty of flies for SPG

It’s an old saying that ‘there are no flies on him’, but when it came to the first theme of 2022 – Macro / Close Up – there were plenty of flies pictured by our members!

Our judge, Brian Pere of Duston CC, was in part horrified and part fascinated by the images shown. You could see the colours, hairs and suckers on these examples of diptera we captured. But in the end pollen and stamen won out and you could say that first and second place went to an old song by the Who: ‘Pictures of Lily‘.

In the Open a new entrant scored a win on debut as he unearthed a fox to leave Brian quite envious of this shot to which he could maybe only toast him by saying Bottoms Up, which came second.
