10x Nomada eye_2015-04-13-17.41.16 ZS PMax

New Lense set up! This is my first stack from a new lens set up that I learned from Johan Ingles-Le Nobel's lovely Extreme Macro layout. The simple version is that I have attached a 10x Nikon microscope objective to an old M series Pentax that I have modified to fit on my Canon Mark ii5D...seems to work great and you can nearly see right down the individual barrels of the omatidia. This is a Nomada luteoloides male from my backyard, by the way. More to Come.

USGSBIML Photoshopping Technique: Note that we now have added using the burn tool at 50% opacity set to shadows to clean up the halos that bleed into the black background from "hot" color sections of the picture.
