Hissing Cockroach Eye

One of our madagascar hissing cockroaches passed away last month due to improper handling at the pet store by the salesman. We imagine that it starved to death after being injured and unable to eat as it died about a month and a half after we got it and never seemed to act 'quite right'. I took the opportunity to photograph the eyes, which have dried out and are thus light tan instead of the normal a dark brown.

 

A 53 image stack of a dead cockroach using the new 10x lomo at 10 μm step/frame. I overdid the step distance, the stack should have been around 100 images to form a 'clean' seam betewen the layers. Oh well, I still think it look pretty good :)
