Beautiful colours. It's not until you get it up on screen you can see all their hairy little details - a brilliant capture! Smile

Carol, words fail me.
I don't want to sound patronising in any way, but you have a skillset that needs to be written down or passed on in some way.
I have sat and studied these images for a full 5 minutes (a long time, on epz..!) and tried to work out how you get this detail...
... focus stacking? That's the closest I have seen, quality-wise, elsewhere. But, no, your images are 'alive'.
A book is needed - and you would fill it with aplomb - and it would be a best-seller... !
...and I thought words failed me..!
