Yes, many of the Blow Flies are metallic; Greenbottle and Bluebottle flies are all Blow Flies.

Very nice indeed Very Happy

Just out of interest, and it might be a silly question, but how are you firing the 2 flashes? Are they a twin-flash or are you using 2 independent flashes tethered to the camera - or one as a slave?

Thanks Chris

I have a Nikon's R1C1 flash system. Wireless remote; can have as many SB-R200 (those shown) flashes as you wish. I sometimes use 3.

Thanks.
This ref. lists 118 species from your area Rolling Eyes
www.aseanbiodiversity.info/scripts/count_article.asp?Article_code...

OK that link does not work. Try Google "Singapore calliphorids"

At least the Lucilia species should be metallic.

I have been reading, that once a body is cool then blowflies will deposit their eggs in moist sheltered areas, such as the mouth, nostrils, and, .... things.
After about a couple of days the body stops giving organ-breakdown clues as to time of death, so blowflies and their mates are invaluable in that their life-cycle timing, with multiple larva instars moulting away and so on, can be used to date the demise.

This does not happen in London. Bodies in my garden just dessicate, and eventually the cat eats them. Maybe it's the same in Singapore?

London seems to have got pretty sterile since I lived there.
Whereas you should have perhaps a dozen species or less, Singapore has 118 - something should come to his dead pig.

Sorry I did not know that our housefly is also known as blow fly, I have seen three to four types of fly but now it's pretty difficult to find them. I guess there must be little opportunity for them to live here as our city is pretty clean and the whole island is more or less build up. I caught a few fly during the pass month they as not that colorful like yours so when I saw your blowfly its really blow me off. I am a noob about insect and only use common names. I may have come across some blow fly which we simply say housefly hahaha I am that stupid. Hey thanks for all your superb info and I will try to learn about it later.

Nu

Thanks !!!!!!!! for posting this . Your stand mod. is brilliant. I have an Oly BHA stand I use with with Nikon CF Plan objectives and a work in process rig that was intended for "other stuff " stacking, which has just been abandoned in favour of this approach.

Many of the issues I had with my stand alone rig revolved around getting fine enough increments and also alignment issues between the travel of the subject or sensor which left the individual images in the stack drifting left/right/up/ down .

I have no such problems when using my scope/camera setup for stacking so anticipate this mod. suggestion of yours which simply requires removing the head and objective mount will yield the same desirable results.

ty

Will - why not mount the camera tubes/bellows straight on to the top of the BHA "objective" arm, where the rotating viewing head would go. All you need is a dovetail ring on a flat camera-body cap. Then there are no alignment problems and vibrations are unlikely.
