In many dragonfly species the males and females look different, but in some cases there are multiple forms of females. Females that look different from males in markings or coloration are called gynomorphs and females that resemble males are called andromorphs. This is a male Rhionaeschna multicolor...

Thanks for adding this Rik! I ran it last night on a stack and oddly the slabs disappeared and the project was not saved. This morning I ran it again and it saved the slabs correctly and I saved the project manually just to be sure. My workflow has been to Align and Stack All (P{Max) in Batch. Reloa...

I shoot with a Nikon D810 on a Stackshot controlled be Zerene and also tethered to a PC. I use ControlMyNikon for live view and setting controls on the camera. I hate this program! It will not display the full frame view when in Live View and the aperture and exposure comp. spontaneously change (tha...
