Spotted this female bee fly posing on a vertical fence post. All shots focus stacked using zerene.

The stacking makes it pop. How many shots did you take and did you use a focusing rail?

Superb. You know, if you keep posting those cross-eye stereograms, my eyes are going to stick like that.

Thanks all for the comments.

Segedi - stacks only 4 or 5 shots - camera handheld - I was able top rest my hand against the same fence post to stabilise the FOV.

Moose - don't worry - I've not gone cross-eyed yet :)
