I have posted this already, but I thought by making a 'dedicated' thread, I may get more help.

There was a guy that won a prize recently (In the last 2 years perhaps?) for a 'portrait of a fly head', using stacking technique. I think he took like 200 photos using a microscope and stacked them, but I cannot find the original photo anywhere on the web.

Does anyone know who took it, or where I can see the photo? I think he may have been a Nikon user.

I would really like to see that photo again. It was rather stunning...

I was also watching a documentary on this fellow, on how he made it, but I cannot recall if this was on the web or TV, and, as you can guess, I cannot find that either :(
