Well those who have seen my very recent images will know exactly how an image like this is created and what's involved, so I won't go trying to explain or justify it other than to say that this was a 44 images stack and the specimen was returned to the wild alive and unharmed....

Thanks for stopping by.....Ade

Thanks folks, I'll post the face on shot tomorrow which was a massive 88 image stack, what's more I did them all within 10 minutes before releasing the specimen.....It then took me 4 hours to process the final image mind Sad

Special thanks to Chavinder, Karen and Tony's award, muchly appreciated as always guys....
