Agreed. I especially like image #3 -- unusual viewpoint showing the underside of the head, with dramatic glancing illumination.

Can you tell us, or remind us, what optics you are using?

How many images in those high-magnification stacks?

Thanks

ChrisR,
I used Nikon D610 + extension tube 36mm + Tamron at 300mm + Nikon CFI plan achromat 10x. Stack was assembled from 98 shots.

bobfriedman,
thank you!

Magnification = sensor width / field width at subject.

Photograph a mm scale to determine the field width at subject.

Beautiful stacks !

This is a "cluster fly", Pollenia in the family Calliphoridae and not a Musca domestica.

Pollenia is easy to recognize by the "golden hairs" on the thorax.
