Focus stacked robber fly
After I found lordV on the internet I've always been intreged by the way he focus stacks his macro shots.
For those who don't know him you should visit him at or

So today when a robber fly landed in the garden I tried focus stacking my macro shots of an insect for the first time.
(these are the results of over 270 handheld shots most where worthless) k20d + kiron105mm

First one - landed and didn't stay long enough.
4 stacked images - 1/40sec - f4.5 - iso800

Second one
8 stacked images - 1/160sec - f4.5 - iso800

Third one,
14 stacked images - 1/160sec - f4 - iso800

almost no cropping , helicon focus for focus stacking the 6mp versions are available at my smugmug.

The bottom line, I'm happy with the result, but I guess I still can go a lot better.
