I wanted some photos with my scanner lens to see how it worked out with flies.

I am quite pleased. These are fine!

Pentax K-01 mirror less camera with Minolta scanner lens on extension. LED lighting, synthetic stereo from Zerene, Processed with DMAP on the lower magnification and with DMAP/PMAX blended on the shot with larger magnification. I ran the images through StereoPhoto Maker. I put a border on the first shot for comparison. Borders can help make viewing a bit easier sometimes.

OMG! I can see these! What I thought I was seeing before (occasionally) wasn't it. I just had to sit a lot further back from the monitor. Once your eye "locks", it doesn't feel like being cross-eyed anymore - and the 3d is perfect. These are great, but I've got a lot to go look at again now. Including many of my own. Thanks.

These really work beautifully. Very good illustrations and a delight to look at. Very glad Beatsy's penny has dropped!

Keith what are us using as "glue"? No sign of goop! The flickr pictures are large enough that I can print each image A4(210x297mm), laminate the pair and put them on the wall at school. The reaction will be adolescent, but such is life.

Many thanks mawyatt, adomacro, rolsen and Beatsy for the kind comments.

I have just shifted my bug rig to a dedicated table I constructed a week ago after 9 years on a “temporary” portable Workmate collapsible bench. I wanted to check for any stability issues with the new table and so far so good. I have screwed things down and liberated numerous C-clamps for other projects. Also the kitchen chair that supported the power supply and controller for my stepper and LED lights has been replaced with a built in shelf. Everything is much less precarious. Another retirement project crossed off the list.

Sally Hansen “Black Out” Hard as Nails fingernail polish. Thank goodness for the Goth look! Black polish abounds.

I paint the polish on pointy end of a round toothpick/Hors d'oeuvre spear then press it against the distal ends of the mid/hind legs. The dead specimen is cantilevered from there. With some practice that works well. I liked super glue better, but concerns over superglue outgassing and causing condensate on optics caused me to shift to nail polish.

Polish link below.

Thanks Troels and Roel.

These small flies are common in Northern Illinois in the mid summer. The adults do mating rituals to help them confirm the species before the female consents to mate. Females of related species are nearly impossible to distinguish visually (believe me, I have tried!) and frequent the same leaves. The males approach females and display hoping that the magic of his hover flight or flight hops tickles her fancy. If she is unresponsive he moves on.
