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.

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. Posted 8 months ago
