Canon 50D, Nikon 20x M Plan 210/0 ELWD Microscope Objective @210, (stacked in Zerene Stacker)

Some blown highlights and other blobs; but I liked the look of it.

*edit: adjusted title

Thanks David,

I'll need to check on the name of the butterfly. I've had it in storage for some time - but I did not attach any info to the specimen after setting; so will need to check my records and delve into memory.

Yes. beautiful!

One of my first impressions was that it really reminds me of certain chrysanthemum petals.

... so have we bid "good-bye" to augusthouse and "hello" to Craig...

Rogelio,

The illumination was a fiber optic ringlight attached to the objective and half a 44mm ping pong ball for a diffuser. Some discussion regarding the ringlight Here. Slices were 6 micron. I did a stack using 2 micron increments but the six step gave a more desirable outcome in this instance.

Thanks Charlie!

...yes, I've chosen to post under my name instead of using "augusthouse" Cool

Now, to track down the name of this butterfly.

I've adjusted the title of the post and added the name.
