I was lucky enough to find a nomada bee immobilised by the sun going behind a cloud. I cut off the leaf it was sitting on- placed it on a nearby wheelie bin lid and had a photosession.
All shots 5Dmk2/MPE-65/430Ex flash hand held and focus stacked using zerene.

Detail on the last one if fantastic!

btw, when you do stacking handheld, you do one shot at a time or do you keep the shutter pressed while moving the camera?
