Handsome fungus beetle @ 10x (focus stack)

    Newer Older

    Endomychus coccineus is a common fungus beetle (Endomychidae) in Hungary. The species lives in deciduous forests, feeds on fungi. It can be found under barks of dead fallen trees, often in groups also together with the larvae (see the picture below!)

    The image was made from 123 shots with the Mitutoyo BD Plan APO 10x microscope objective on bellows. Stacked in Zerene Stacker - PMax method. The beetle is a dead mounted specimen!

      another amazing work, as always, the 3D render is awesome, always like the lighting of stacking, great softness, I have tried some but still too harsh on some areas of mine, thanks a lot for sharing your hard works

      Very beautifull one, as allways. Beeing a bark living bug the neutral brown background fits very nicely

      yeah! the light is superb! Very nice work! I look at the 3-D version, and maybe its because my eyes are getting old, (i'm 52) but the front legs appear to be comming upwards towards me. The antenna make a swing down and then up towards me. Very nice effect!
