In our photo club, the latest talk is all about focus stacking. Th Olympus Tough Touch automatically takes 30 images for photo stacking then in the Affinity software program the image gets produced. How did you manage to still this fly and shoot at various apertures without him moving? This is a top-notch photo but it is too bad the leg is obscured by the green.

author says:

Focus stacking on live animals is a matter of luck, you have to cross your fingers so that there is no wind and the animal does not change position while shooting. This time I was lucky

A triple crown - CONGRATULATIONS ! ! !

I am still miffed by the fact you took 20 photos of this fly without him moving? Can you share your technique with us please?

author says:

My technique is simple : a tripod, a focus rail and the self-timer... and I take my pictures early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid the wind. That's all !

Thank you for getting back to me. Appreciated....did you know that insects are most active during morning and evening, during the heat of the day they rest.

author says:

I did not notice any difference in activity between the morning/evening and the middle of the day, all I noticed is that the full sun is the worst enemy of macrophotography !
