Yes, the title is similar to my last post but the subject is different a bit. I hope you will like it as well. Now I did a few stacks of a male medfly Ceratitis capitata which is a real pest of fruits in several points of the globe.
It has been exported from the Mediterranean area with citruses to e.g. South and North America, Australia and Europe. Its larva developes in intact fruits, in one infected fruit you can find more specimens. Adults can disperse only in warm climated areas, but larvae can reach anywhere in the world with transported fruits.
This fellow has been hatched from a tangerine. Kept it alive for a few days, feed it with sugary water. After its death I shortly made these stacks. Each one was taken with the Nikon BD Plan 10/0.25 finite objective at different magnifications and different point of views.

Frontal view at 10x magnification:

Canon EOS 5D + Asahi Pentax Auto Bellows (200mm) + Nikon BD Plan 10/0.25 + Canon Speedlite 580EXII; 182 shots; Zerene (PMax)
Click for larger!

Frontolateral at 8,7x magnification:

Canon EOS 5D + Asahi Pentax Auto Bellows (175mm) + Nikon BD Plan 10/0.25 + Canon Speedlite 580EXII; 182 shots; Zerene (PMax)
Click for larger!

Dorsal at 7,5x magnification:

Canon EOS 5D + Asahi Pentax Auto Bellows (150mm) + Nikon BD Plan 10/0.25 + Canon Speedlite 580EXII; 103 shots; Zerene (PMax)
Click for larger!

Cross-eye stereogram:

Shifting: -3% +3%
Click for 1600x1200px!

Animated rocking:

9 images, shifting: -3% +3%

Cheers, Nikola

Lovely subject, very nicely shot! Again thanks for the rocker! Smile

One small glitch on the rocker, there are a couple of white hairs on the left which appear to go over a black hair which they shouldn't... I was staring at it in awe for a while before I noticed that though!

Nikola,

These are outstanding!

I see the anomaly Laurie mentioned......s'truth Laurie you must have been looking closely to notice that Shocked The stereogram also reveals similar results when looking at that particular area.

These are such beautiful images! And yep, that's a classic "transparent foreground" glitch.

This conversation strikes me as a tribute to how far we've come.

I just had a vision of standing in the art gallery, admiring a beautiful cut crystal vase with elegant gold detailing, and saying in all seriousness, "Hey, look, there's a bubble!" Laughing

Craig, click on the pic and cross your eyes! Laughing



I'm sorry, it was a small inattention, I'll try to be more attentive while retouching.

Well I didn't notice the hair the wrong colour! Smile Beautifully done, again. The rear view is especially interesting to see.
Do you have a special cleaning technique?

No, I just was lucky with this specimen, as I wrote it was hatched in studio circumstances and did not contact with the outside world. A few small white dust has been removed with retouching in PS.

As I told before these are great stackings!
these must be the best 3-d stacking photos of Ceratitis capitata ever!

TO have an idea of the general body I put here a photo I took in 2007 (single shot with Sigma 105 mm lens + kenko extension tubes + speedlite 430 ex + diffuser). It seems I must do a remake photography session of this fly.



(there is another photo - in the thread of "collembolan 3 mm" - of this C. capitata).
