    These are a couple done through a microscope lens on bellows at about or slightly less than 10x and 25x or similar with an a700 stacked in combinezp.

    The poor girl was recently deceased so kept very still for stacking, i had to get her out of the vivarium and under the camera quick before the children noticed one of their pets had departed. I like that you can see that all the seperate eyes are like straws with a lens on the end, so as the insect can see out but if you dont look directly down one you see the sides of the straw with their camo coulouring so that it stays nicely cryptic.

    Wow! talk about detail.
    beautiful work there - and very patient work too for staking at that magnifcation - really like that the shots are bright and clear to see as well.
    Out of interest - what is it?

    Thanks Overread, it is a stick insect, very cheap pet that is luckily disposable so the kids can learn to look after something not too fragile before getting their own. Also nice to have subjects to take pics of even in the winter :).
