It looks as if it will be another day of wall to wall sunshine. This was my first glimpse of the sun at five o’clock this morning. There are lots of insects about but they are a bit lively for me. I’m failing miserably. I did manage to focus stack a dead bumble bee but it was a bit cobwebby. I tried to tidy it up but was making things worse so decided to just get on and take it’s picture.
I think a tiny watercolour brush would probably be best for cleaning up dead insects I’ll have to remember to get one. These images are all stacked in Zerene and taken using EOS Utility. The stacks were approximately twenty five images for each at f9 using the MP-E 65mm lens on a Manfrotto macro slide. It is a rather ungainly pose but it was the only way it would balance.
That’s all for today.
