A couple of focus-stacked Marbled Whites, form N. Yorkshire, UK, this morning.
The first is a manual stack of 40 shots, with the Laowa f2.8 2:1 macro, and the second used the R5's auto-stacking feature with the 180mm f3.5L macro.

Wow I find it hard to get butterflies to stay still for one shot - let alone 40.

This was early morning, before the sun hit them and they became active.
