dead Honey bee from hives at my work place, first attempt with Zerene stacking software, 50 images. Probably a constant light source would have been better than flash used here.

Impressive results. The stacking software has handled all the fine hairs really well on the bee.

Looking pretty good, although you ran across the same problem I have with studio stacks on the bee: it's tough to get the lint off a dead subject. That midge stack is quite good. It's quite tricky to get that kind of detail on such a tiny insect, particularly when cropped like that.

That spider mite shot is a stunner. Nice, saturated color and an interesting dichotomy between the texture of mite and background.

I know nothing about stacking but these images are amazing. The detail is superb Toby.

thanks, you can get free stacking software called CombineZ, simple to use at its mots basic. I think full frame 5D cameras require it more often than cropped sensors.

STacking worked very well, particularly in the second, which is beautifully sharp.
