    Nice I read about this on the insect forum.

    It looks like you have a spider mite maybe? What's that little thread doing there? LOL

    Thanks for the kind words
    LOL, swords.... look carefully and you will see a whole family of predators en mass around the end of the thread

    Different stack ( I took several while I had everything setup, the rest had way too movement)

    This one is a little cleaner in some areas and a little worse in others

    I love this technique - technology is incredible!

    Most of my questions were answered by the embedded video (thanks) - but still had one:

    Can this process still work if the plane of focus is changed? With ultra-macro, frequently the entire camera is moved to get a slightly different focus point as adjusting the manual focus control has little impact.
    All the best,

    It works whether you change the DOF by twisting the focusing ring or moving the camera closer/farther from the subject. The mp-e 65 doesn't even have a focus ring, only way to focus is to change the zoom or move the camera.

    Butch,

    You are having WAY too much fun!

    Glad to see it!

    That is one of those "Carnivorous" roses, right? Looks real nice, even if it's not!
    Very nice PS work!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
