White moth, short DOF, compound eye preserve

The entire image of the shoot at f/5, with Canon MP-E 65mm lens at 4x, wich result in a effective aperture of f/25, still into diffraction arena but much less than the usual compromisses of the apertures used at this magnification. The depth of field cover only the eyes and was possible to overexpose them for noiseless results in post processing. In post processing used very little sharpening and slight underxposed to be compatible with the image at f/16


The body of the insect lost most of the info in highlights and out of DOF parts, but will not be used for the final result.
