The stack of images for this fly was taken with a reverse mounted 50mm EL Nikkor on a camera bellows. Camera was a Nikon D200.

I've seen many of your great images. But these ones look too unrealistic :) More like computer generated monster in hi-end computer game :)))

Amazing photos of amazing creatures!

It's a good thing that monitors are vertical and not horizontal because otherwise my drooling over your results would REALLY mess up my ability to see them! :lol:

I am thinking these are dead ? Do you think the eye color or something would be a slightly different color if it was captured alive?! (For some reason I think the eyes or skin would have a green tint, or is that something else I am thinking of?

These are fascinating images, I am curious as to the lighting/exposure and in this case the number of images in the stack.
