Very active guy, he jumped to the flash diffuser several times (about 20 or more times in a 40 min photo time), after a lot of failed photos I lifted the flash more distant from the lens, longer jump require longer thinking so he remained more time calculating the jump which was enough for 2 photos for a stack.

2 exposures at:

f/10 | 1/100s | iso 100 | FEC +2/3
Canon T1i with Canon MP-E 65mm @ 2x.
580 EX II flash bracket mounted with a LumiQuest Mini SoftBox diffuser near the lens and silver bounce at right.

I just had to pick my jaw up from the floor :shock:

The perspective is very very lovely, multiple lighting sources bring out so many details (although the area to the left of his eyes looks blown), the focusing and dof are so precise. Just superb.

This is stunning. I can feel your pain, shooting macros of fast moving insects takes patients and yours paid off!
