Digging up that old thread of mine on butterfly proboscis http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=89562#89562 jogged my memory that I had some more butterfly tongue pictures somewhere. A bit of research on a poorly indexed Embarassed and overfull Crying or Very sad archive drive turned up the stacks I was looking for. These images are of the tip of a Pieris (cabbage white) butterfly proboscis and show pollen grains firmly sticking on. They are a stitch of two Zerene Pmax stacks, each of 38 images taken using a Lomo X20, 0.65 Apochromat objective, with a Nikon X40 DIC prism on a Nikon Diaphot. Camera, Canon EOS 40D, magnification at the camera X50.







I made a stereo pair of the same subject from a single 39 image PMax stack, using a Nikon X10, 0.25 plan DIC objective. There are lots of unfixed transparency issues, but I think it still looks interesting





I also restacked this image from my old thread
http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/userpix/718_butterflytongueX10grey2_1.jpg and converted it to a Zerene stereo pair and post it here rather than posting new images in a very old thread.





I just love the sheer baroqueness of this structure!

Excellent images. This subject really is fun to see in a 3D version.

Thanks Charlie. Yes, the 3Ds are interesting. I especially was pleased with the second one, which just shows so much depth and detail. It does very much remind me of baroque molding on an elaborate gilt picture frame.
