So here is a 15-frame mosaic, each frame is a focus-stack of 20 exposures, focus-stacking using Helicon Focus. Fruit Fly (Drosophila) at magnification x50. Data acquired by Greg Parker and data processing by Noel Carboni of Florida, U.S.A.

Crikey, there's a fair bit of detail there (viewed LARGE) You can even see the hairs on the leading edge of the wings! 8)

Brilliant Greg.

Thank you :D Yes the magnification of x50 and the Canon 5D MkII pulled a bit more out than when I did this a couple of years back with the Canon 40D and a magnification of only x20.
