Striped Horsefly (focus stacked)

Took advise and tried out focus stacking. This was easy job to do because I found this fly dead in my car. Still, a good practise.
I took 11 photos and focus stacked them in CombineZM. Nice software but it's a shame that it doesn't support 16-bit images.

Stunning Joni.
Must have been razor-thin DoF per exposure to have to need 11 here.
Well done - the detail is just spectacular.

This is the stuff nightmares are made of. Very fine and a technical tour de force.
