Gérard,

This looks excellent!

A few "haloes" that could be "cleaned" up, but that about all it needs.

What photo processing software do you use?

Thanks,I actually put the subject in the fridge for a while before shooting.It helps to keep them quiet.

So was this subject live when photographed???

If so, did you do anything to keep it cold while you shot the stack?

Rik,I think that I left it a bit too much in the fridge because it never came back to life...
