The proboscis was gently squirming as I took the 350 shots for this stack, so areas got distorted (see top right). I guess it needs to dry more. So no retouching here as I'd pretty much given up on this image, But cropping the worst out left a reasonable pic IMO - albeit with a few obvious "transparency" artifacts. 20x mitty at 13,5x on full frame.

Very dramatic, and a lot of depth of field for this magnification.
At first glance, my brain registered "Snake!!"

Fascinating image, make a great stereo, but that's a deep stack Shocked The butterfly tongue also makes an interesting mounted subject. See:

Pity the Photosynth links are dead now. I loved that program and I've never really found a replacement.

Thanks for the comments all. Glad you liked it despite the unedited artefacts.

I really enjoyed the posts you linked Dave, I don't recall seeing them before. Fascinating. Co-incidentally it had already crossed my mind to mount this one for microscope inspection too, but I forgot and threw it away after changing the specimen on the macro rig. Doh! Plenty more in the box though and your linked posts have inspired me to try sooner rather than later.

Time to dig out the euparal...

Impressive, thanks for sharing. Very Happy Looks completely different compared with (smaller) honey bee tongue.
Understood you project straight onto the sensor without a relay lens or photo eyepiece, correct?

Best regards,
Walter

Thanks Walter. I used a 20x Mitutoyo M Plan APO mounted on a 135mm prime. Not sure if that's called 'direct projection' or not as there's another lens between the objective and the sensor. Suspect not.
