Studio stack: Syritta

Syritta pipiens, Syrphidae, female

 

This is a 189 exposure stack of a prepared specimen.

 

Shot at approximately 10x on FF sensor with Mitutoyo 10x + $9 achromat acting as tube lens. My new favorite solution for this magnification.

 

The uploaded version is slightly cropped to reduce some empty space to the top/left, but not resized, so it shows actual pixels from the 5DmkII.

 

Lighting: One Nikon SB-24 diffused through a white plastic yoghurt bottle wrapping around the subject.
