    Amazing set. Just amazing.

    It's the size of the split they squeeze out of. Tiny!

    Are you sure it isn't a Grinning Dog moth?

    ID please.

    The common blue in my book is much darker. Silver-studded blue?

    I have to say that I am seriously impressed by the ability to stack hand-held.
    Apart from the ability to hold the camera in the right place at all for such shots, the facilities on some of the cameras now are pretty staggering.

    The stacking was done in post. The camera will stack with some AF lenses but I was using MF only Laowa 50mm.

    But how in earth do you hand-hold the camera sufficiently accurately to achieve an image stack? If I try to do any macro the first thing I become aware of is the fact I can’t hold my position to within inches, not millimetres. I sway backwards and forward like crazy, especially if I try to bend over to take a picture.
