Wonderfully done. I am wondering about the specimens in your photographs. They look alive - so how are you getting them under a microscope and once there - to stay still enough for focus stacks. Thanks - I'd appreciate any insights.

Anupam, obviously you haven't been here for a while... Charles offered him a whiskey. Laughing

Anupam... Welcome!

Unfortunately, with a compound microscope, if you intend to do a "stack" for extended DOF, your subjects need to be perfectly still. This usually means they are either anesthetized (a rather inexact science!), or recently deceased (very exact... but unfortunate). Usually, if I resort to the latter I will do the overall shots first, and then progress to higher magnification images of tiny parts and details, perhaps even making mounted slides.

Thanks for the clarification. I tend to do in the field photography of live critters and even when they are still in the morning, have found it very difficult to do more than a few shots at a reasonably high magnification with reversed enlarger lenses, so I was wondering if there's a trick I am missing.

Brilliant and very funny as well! Now I know how they capture prey. They use hypnosis! Smile
