Great shot. When it works right DIC is just wonderful, even if acquiring it is the path to financial ruin, relationship counselling and incipient madness! :lol:

Waldo, congratulation to this picture. I like it very much.
The genus of the moss is - I think - Mnium.

Very nice, Waldo! Did you cut the moss or is this just an "Optical Cut" with DIC?

Thanks for the kind comments. Ecki, I did cut the moss leaf but longitudinally along the midrib only as this midrib is particularly thick. The z-axis is as it is.

Hi Waldo.

Wow, brilliant photo, phantastic details! :-))

Which DIC-system (no 60x at Zeiss, a Nikon?) did you use?

Greetings

Jens
