Clint - that is a totally scary shot! I'm sure I saw this guy in a movie, eating someone... Anyway, a great shot.

Wow, such an detailed shot.

Have you used a macro with an additional Achromate and a flash?

Cheers,

Stefan

It's easy to take pictures when your subject is dead.

It makes "stacking" a lot easier!!

For all my macros I use the Sigma 105mm.
For this I used the Metz MS 15-1 ring flash (it's dark in my basement).
I found it dead outside. Picked up a piece of bark and "posed" it for his picture.
I took about 10 pictures and again used CombineZP to stack them.

Saly - I think he was in a movie - her's a picture of a "young one" I took a while back.
He looks like something out of Star Wars.
