Myrmica rubra shot using transmitted polarised light at x200 magnification. The ant was about 6mm.
A composite of about 1500 images. 33 images stitched together made from stacks of about 50 images.
Largely hand stacked


The polarised light shows the striated muscle fibres inside the ant.
The starfield is not fake, but rather small bits of dust etc. in the mounting medium, made visable with polarised light. I did darken the background.
