Here's a pretty good look at the face of a carpenter ant. Although my favorite pond beckons, I'm still enthralled at what can be done with images stacks and software like Helicon Focus. This kind of image has eluded me for so many years... it's just fun to finally have the technology available to pull it off!

Olympus 2X Flourite, 2.5X photo-eyepiece, Canon 10D. Tungsten illumination via fiber optic illuminator and Charlie's secret ant diffuser apparatus. (OK... it's just a Fuji film container with the top cut off Wink ). 33 images combined in using HF.

Wonderful result, Charlie! There are so many interesting possibilities nowadays. What will the future bring?

The only difficulty with this technique is the fact that you have to have non motile subjects. But imagine a camera that takes all these stacks in one nanosecond and than immediately combine them to form a multifocal image!
