    I've wanted to get a shot of one of these bugs for ages, and then the other week one lands right on my windowsill and poses for me!

    Taken with Canon 400D, Canon MPE65mm macro, 580EX2 + lumiquest softbox
    Each shot taken at f5.6, ISO 100, 1/200sec
    Stacked from a series of 5 shots with Combine ZP

    I might have to try editing and stacking again to lose a bit of the glare around the midface area, but overall I'm very pleased with the result. It was a handheld stack with the main limit being the recycle time on my flash. I'm seriously putting though to getting an external powerpack just so I can burst out 5-10 fast shots with flash when handholding a stack (there were 3 or so missed frames in this stack alone - thankfully there was enough to make a working stacked shot)

    Any comments/crits welcome - thank you :)

    Macro photography is so cool because it allows you to see things that the human eye just can't possibly see (without the help of optics that is).

    I know that I am stating the obvious here, but in this case it seems especially true.

    That is one big crazy looking eye lol. :thumbup:

    Very cool. I haven't done any macro for a while, but that shot makes me want to get out the 105 macro and hit it hard.
