22-spot ladybird set

Psyllobora vigintiduopunctata (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae). Size: 3,5 mm


Here are three pictures of an attempt of early morning focus stacks taken this spring in the garden of our house. The morning wasn't really cold and this ladybird always moved a bit, spoiling the sequence.

First: 23 shots with the MP-E65 at 5x, f/4.5, 1/3 sec., ISO-200. As each of my natural light stacks, this one was made on tripod as well. Fine steps taken with a linear stage.
