Stag Beetle, sitting on sunglasses

Taken outdoors on a white table, hence the very bright background.

 

This is a stacked image, ie a series of images (5 in this case) where you concentrate the focus on a different part of the subject. You then combine those images in your processing software to give a greatly increased DoF. This shot was done with a free trial version of Helicon focus, which was very simple to use, but I'm not sure I want to spend that much money ($150 minimum) on something I'll only use occasionally.
