Found a flash resistant male dolichopid fly sitting on the arm of a sunchair in the garden the other day.
All shots focus stacked using zerene.

Àmazing captures Brian, do you use a tripod for the stacking photo's?

Thanks all for the comments - appreciated :)

Frank - no tripod. I was either gripping the arm of the chair with my hand and resting the lens on that or resting the lens directly on the chair arm. I've got fairly good at shooting incremental focus shots like that.

Toby Have had a suprising number of flash resistant dolis in the garden this year - beginning to wonder if I'm applying artificial selection for them :)

Splendid shots, Brian. These are quite a challenge but are well worth it.
