Canon 30D, ST-E2 remote flash trigger. 430EX with LumiQuest softbox fitted – hand-held, MP-E65mm, Canon 1.4x teleconverter, f/16

Photographer’s comments:
“This guy flew in my window very noisily – I thought he was some kind of hornet at first! I think it is probably some kind of drone fly. Anyway – he sat in several places around my room while I chased him with my camera and flash once I’d stopped being scared of him! This one was taken while he perched on the top of a doorframe – I had to stand on a chair to get high enough. “
