Necrophila Renatae - stack, Heesch, Netherlands A focus stack of the species I shared earlier, where the others were single shot. What's disappointing is how dirty the specimen is even though I did clean it by soaking  it in warmish water with dish-wash soap, a common method. I should have used something stronger.

  1. The amazing focus achieved by stacking is always impressive! Posted 23 days ago
    1. True, only challenge is that it also focuses on dirt :) Posted 22 days ago
      1. It doesn't look too dirty to me, though. But, I'm guessing you cleaned it up. Posted 22 days ago, modified 22 days ago
        1. Depends on whether you zoom in :) Example: just below the thorax. Posted 22 days ago
          1. I saw that bit, but compared to what it would probably look like in nature, that smidgen of dirt doesn't detract from the beauty of the beetle. Posted 20 days ago
            1. In this case, the area that is dirty is kind of OK, but I do hate it when it happens on the key points of attention, like the head.

              Could also be wrong cleaning technique. Soaking them in a cleaning agent may in fact release all kinds of dirt from under the thorax, which then dries up.
