3-D crosseye stereogram of bubble blowing

    3-D Cross-eye stereogram
    Scatophaga stercoria blowing a bubble. Stare at the pic, slightly de-focus and cross your eyes until a third image appears in the middle and then try to relax your eyes to see a stable 3-D image. If you can visualise this one, try the large size.

      Well, that's not so easy as you told/wrote to Brian V, when making a macro, isn't it?! Certainly not when making a macro at this enlargement.
      You must have had a device for it, I think!

      Thanks again for the comments :)

      Lookatit - just using my standard macrophotography rig (DSLR & macro lens) - 2 shots with a little lateral movement in between them.

      Okay, I'm having trouble with the 3-D stereogram. Which photo do I look at; the left one or the right one or do I look at the line in the middle? Qhat do you mean by 'cross your eyes'? I've tried thumbnail, small and normal size. Please, help me, Thanks.

      Nina - try this - sit with your eyes about 2 feet from the screen with the large size image displayed.
      Hold up a finger about 4" in front of your nose and focus on it. (this forces you to go cross-eyed) You should see a third picture appears between the original two pictures in the background. Now try to slide your finger out of the way whilst keeping the third picture in view. You will find the picture in the middle is in stereo.

      I'm trying your steps, getting the image in the middle. However, as you know my finger is in the way, everytime I go to move my finger the image goes away =(. Anyway I'll try later on. Thank you for the tip.

      Nina- it does take a bit of practice - you are trying to train your eyes/brain. Once you get it it's like riding a bike- you don't forget how to do it. I do this so frequently my eyes/brain do the correct thing everytime I see a picture pair.

      Wonderful details.
      The cross-view magic worked for me some days ago, it's a great new world.

      Wow! 1300 stereo macros!!
      I know how to spend my time the next months ;-)

      I'll keep practicing. I think I'm getting there. Doesnt help when your eyes are itchy, however. Thanks for all your help. Great picture 3-D or not anyway. Pretty awesome when you get get a picture of a fly blowing a bubble once let alone twice to see it 3-D. Never knew flies could do that, pretty awesome for a fly.
