Mounting multiple insects in a studio scene can be challenging, but fun. This is a 120 image stack, Zerene PMax.
Canon 7D, Nikon BD Plan 5x, 30um stepping.
The background is a dried autumn leaf. There are a lot of crossing legs/antennas, but Zerene almost made it right, just a little retouching was required.

Wow again.
The twins' eyes haven't "gone" either.
Do you breed them for a contant fresh supply?!

Excellent work. A real 'magazine cover' shot.

Astounding scene. I can't believe I'm actually feeling empathy for an Aphid!
The detail is so vivid, it appears three dimensional. A real masterpiece!
