I went out in the drizzle a couple of days ago to give my new MT-24EX a bit of a test. There's not much about these days, but I found a few things and also did a couple of stacks on some water droplets in the grass. Here are some of my best (and as I improve, some of them rank as my best macro work so far).

1. A three-shot stack of drops on a blade of grass.

4. For those new to focus stacking, here's the difference - the single shot focused on the eyes.

5. A single shot of a tiny spider, about 4mm bodylength, clambering around in the moss. If anyone has any idea about identity, or even whether it is immature or mature, I'd love to hear.

Just curious...what happens if they move during a 3, 4, of 6 shot stack where you are focusing on different parts of the whole? Thanks, I'm still learning about this new hobby!

Think you need to work on a bit of diffusion on the MT-24

sweet spider, I always think these tiddlers are juveniles but often get ID'd as adults.

If they move appreciably, that's the end of the stack. That's why the spider was a single shot, as he never stood still, and the small springtail has blurred legs, because I was just about to complete the stack by focusing on the end of his legs when he moved.

Thanks Brian (and all others who've commented), I wanted to see how it looked "bare" first - I guess I'll have to try a few homemade designs.
