Re: Cluster of Bees

I quite agree--unusual, beautiful, and also strikingly well executed. Welcome to the forum!

Can you give us some information about your lighting?

Re: In-camera focus shifting--down the rabbit hole

Thanks for your thoughts and references, Rik. All informative and very interesting, but the stereo especially so. Not only different populations of scales, but differing characteristics within individual examples!

In-camera focus shifting--down the rabbit hole

I wondered if the focus shift function incorporated into the Nikon 850 would function with the addition of their TC 17EII teleconverter, and whether this might be useful. I chose a small section of a wing from a long deceased Luna moth taped to a glass slide, featuring the prominent “eye” as a test ...

Re: Grasshopper

Thanks, Mark; appreciate the id. Incidentally, I had a look at the door mat in question in a couple of stacks at a much higher magnification, and it doesn't look like organic material, so my grasshopper likely had found something else to eat.

Re: Grasshopper

No problem, Rik. I wondered about placement originally, but guessed wrong. I am a little disappointed that no one has commented on whether it is really likely that my hungry critter was actually eating the sisal or whatever it is that comprises the doormat where I found him. Whatever it was, he real...

Re: Grasshopper

Thanks, Ken. Interesting observation. Somehow it reminded me of Wyeth's "Christina's World" when I first looked at the stack.

Re: Grasshopper

My thanks for all of your kind comments.

Re: Yien's collection of crystal polarized light microphotography

Beautiful set, but I am fascinated by the third image, which has a 3-dimensional quality. Would love to see that one in stereo!
