Mouche tuée par un champignon / Fly Death by Fungus [Entomophthora muscae?]
Lens: PENTAX Helicoid Extension Tube K + Sigma EX 180mm F3.5 APO Macro DG Camera: Pentax K-1 Photo Location: Québec, CANADA ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/50s Aperture: F5.6

(x-posted in the insecta thread)

I experimented the Pentax K-1 + PENTAX Helicoid Extension Tube K + Sigma EX 180mm F3.5 APO Macro DG
1/50s, ƒ/5.6, ISO 200 (natural light)

images stacking with Zerene Stacker (12 images, PMax method)

Just not sure how to calculate the image ratio with this adapter if the 180 macro is 1:1?

Found this fly hanging under an American Elm leave.

The insect has died in that position after it has been infected with entomopageous fungus that introduced the insect body.
We can see part of the mycelium going out of the abdomen. Sometimes, the fungus covers the entire body of the insect.

The technique has to be improved as when we zoom in, we can see some blurred bands on the leave. I will need to make smaller increments...
