Outside your comfort zone
Challenge has finished
Your assignment: Take a photo of something you dislike, and try to see it in a different way. Or try something entirely new. Some examples: If you're a nature photog who doesn't do people photography, take a portrait. If you don't like cats, photograph one. Hate spiders? Well...if it's a phobia talk with your doctor before attempting to use them as a subject, and if they're poisonous steer clear, otherwise give it a try. ;) You get the idea. I hope.

Another insect that I dislike... the fly!!!! Very difficult to get any close to these creatures as they are extremely skittish. I was pleasantly surprised when this one was sitting tight even when my lens was just a few centimeters away from it. I am not really a flash user. But for this one, the lens being so close, I had to use my pop up flash. The light was too harsh initially so I diffused it by covering the flash with a piece of white paper. The resulting light was pretty good.
