OK, I think I have sorted out the problems I was having with stacking images. The photo below is of an immature drumming katydid (Meconema thalassinum) that I compiled from a stack of 41 images. Its head was no more that 2 or 3 mm across. What do you think?
Now it is time to move on to some other subjects. I especially want to spend more time photographing aquatic insects. I also want to shoot more scorpions. I am getting a group of Orthochirus soon...they should be good for photography...
