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.
