Collecting the Sweets

Last week, when photographing some of the prairies in southern Missouri, I captured this nectar-hungry fly working on an Ox-eye Daisy wildflower:

It’s always amazing to see what and how many different types of insects depend on our natural prairies.

  • Canon 5D Mark III body

  • Bogen 3021 tripod with Giotto ballhead
  • ISO 200
  • Aperture f/3.5
