Embed Culex pipiens - pupa 3, Heesch, Netherlands

Culex pipiens - pupa 3, Heesch, Netherlands After my lucky 2.5:1 experiment found here:

...I figured to keep pushing my luck and try a bigger magnification (4x) as well as stronger direct lighting. With a relatively static pupa taking up more of the image, there's less space for its chaotic surroundings. Due to movement in the water itself, the first 2 attempts failed, as the pupa also moved. This is the 3rd try, which I find acceptably sharp given difficult conditions. 

All 3 images are derived from the same single image, just different rotations, crop and post processing in an attempt to show detail in different ways.
