Plumose antennae of a midge

Post by rjlittlefield »


Canon 300D camera
Olympus 20 mm f/2 bellows macro lens set at f/2.8
11X onto the sensor
electronic flash with paper towel diffuser
87 frames
0.001" focus step
Zerene Stacker PMax, no retouching
strongly sharpened with Photoshop USM to bring out structure of the antennae (250% at 4 pixels on the original 3072x2048 frame).

This is full frame, 2.05 mm across the field. Each antenna is a little over 1 mm long.
