Thank you again Frank
The camera I use is a Nikon Coolpix 995. This a 8 year old 3 MegaPixel camera. The camera have very nice optics for macrophoto. When I shoot my macropix I normaly handheld the camera and use 2 ordinary lamps for lightning (no flash) and I set the whitebalance on the camera to incadecent.
The old Coolpix series ( 950 (2MPix), 990 (3MPix), 995 (3MPix), 4500(4MPix) are all excellent cameras for macrophotography.
Here is a link with a test on the 995 modell Nikon Coolpix 995 Review: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review

This is a all around dry fly with a lot off fish taken in Norway. Normally the fly will have deer hair instead off snowshoe rabbit along the hook shank.
The recipe for the fly.
Tie inn the snowshoe rabbit hair along the shank.
bind inn the hackle (silver badger) at the hookbend.
tie inn silk (or dubb the body) and wind forward and tie off the silk.
wrap the hackle to the front and tie off the hackle.
go to the hook eye with your thread and lock the rabbit hair and tie off the fly.
Trim the hackle under the shank.

Very Nice tie by the way.
