Welcome to the forum - cracking first shot!

I have to admit I soon spotted a little green man on its back, then a pair of lady's legs, in long brown boots 8-[

Camera "on sticks", is intriguing -?

Nice image! (And many thanks to ChrisR for pointing out the hidden figures.)

What I find interesting is the whole package: "Seventeen frames ... Camera on sticks triggered with a remote."

I'm envisioning a camera on tripod, with focus stacking controlled by something like a Promote Control.

Can you describe in more detail?

Thank you everybody. Sticks = tripod. I use just a simple remote the exact one is the Yongnuo RF603C II. I had a Canon remote but dropped it in a pond. The lens was set to 1:1. Then i slowly and careful backed the focus off. There was also no wind when the images were created.
