Default The fly is back

I solved the problem with the light, (using a plastic cup around the fly)
I made a bit stronger construction of my macro rig (still no picture)
I changed from helicon focus to Zerene Stacker. HF is great but to expensive and Zerene works as good (imho better)

So now the result a 4:1 macro

19 shots, k5, sigma 105mm, raynox 250dcr, raynox 150dcr, flash with difuser and extra plastic cup diffuser)

For the larger version (3000*2000) click Got this the way I want it.

Wow! Not that the subject doesn't give me the creeps. But, the quality is outstanding.

I echo Patty's sentiment - flies are not my idea of a nice subject, but the picture is outstanding! Guess I'll have to look at Zerene.
