Hi, thought I would show my latest stereo pair that I photographed yesterday, Top one is parallel viewing and the bottom one for cross viewing.

Enjoyed seeing all your work here and happy to know that the thread keeps on moving even if its around a year since we started posting amazing macro and stereo photos.

I have not done much macro photography lately but I have managed to find this poor dead bee in my window seal last weekend. I can't resist taking a closer look and found out that his wings "unzipped" and showed the 2 pairs (4 wings) and his stinger deployed. Hopefully I can find some more interesting small subject to shoot particularly on the field. This is a stacked of 56 photos taken from front to back to achieved a full depth of field. The magnification is around 2X and the lens is a revere 50mm lens with a 52mm extension tube taken at f11. Enjoy!

Hi Raphael, that's really impressive and in no way is it an ugly insect.

Regards Nick.

Thanks Nick!

Some high magnification shots I made lately of a Giant Hoverfly.

Hi, too hot to work out in my garage, so yesterday and this morning I've taken a more leisurely approach with my camera. In my outback bit of rough ground, a few thistles are flowering and I thought one maybe worth a stereo photo, but although the breeze was only very light, the long stems of these thistles were waving about, so a cut a small bunch and decided to photograph them indoors, but I made a mistake of photographing them in front of a window and using the trees outside as a backdrop. The problem was that I needed the lights on my macro lens to illuminate the front, but I hadn't noticed that they produced a halo effect behind the flower, from the reflection in the window glass, otherwise I believe it came out pretty good. So this morning I've had another attempt with coloured paper behind with daylight through the window. Below are eight results the four odd numbered ones are parallel views and the four even numbered ones are cross views and No. 1 & 2 are those with the halo effect. I welcome opinions as to which people think are the best (if any) but the first four where taken in portrait mode and No. 5 & 6 were in landscape mode, No. 7 & 8 are the same as 5 & 6, but each image has been separated by about 12mm.
