Fly on a Match head
Have not tried any stacked photos for a while but I found this little fly already dead, so stuck it onto a match head for the session.
I used my LED ring light for added illumination, and took fourteen photos, the other end of the match was stuck to the backing card with Blue Tak. Camera was mounted on a tripod and each shot was re-focused manually, I understand that macro focusing rails can be used, but I don't have one.

Love the colours and detail its always amazing how something like a humble fly can be so interesting when shown at this magnification and with good lighting.
Brilliant concept and well executed

The legs are a 'dead' giveaway other wise a nice job.

A good example of focus stacking images with great detail from front to back of the fly. Well done Jeffrey, well worth the time and effort.

The colours and detail are excellent Jeffrey, front to back sharpness spot on, as was your goal.
All in all a cracking shot, well worth the effort Sir, like it loads.

A cracking stacked macro Jeffrey as the others have noted. Excellent macro work!
