Hi All,
I am an insect illustrator who has moved into focus-stacked photography as the technology took over.
I currently use one of Roy Larimer's Visionary Digital BK-Plus lab systems, sometimes for special projects with a Hasselblad H4D-200MS camera.
A couple of these have just been uploaded to Google Cultural Institute by Queensland Museum.

I mostly photograph insects and other specimens from the collection.
Here are examples of crops from an image of a new genus of stiletto fly.



Roy recommended I join this group and I look forward to learning and sharing with you all.
Cheers,

Welcome aboard, Geoff!

Looking at your tachinid image in Google, I see that along the leading edges of its wings it has some of the same structures recently shown to us at higher magnification HERE.

I notice also that in your tachinid image there are strips of what look like naked membrane -- no hairs -- paralleling some of the central veins. Is that perception correct, or is there something interesting going on with the photography?

NB - I had to double-click the insect images in Geoff's links before they would zoom bigger. I didn't realise, first time I visited.
