......You know you want tooTongue

One shot full frame image at x4 magnification straight out the camera with the exception of a tweak on the colour balance as flash was used. Shot more as an experiment to find out how much DOF I had at F16, (not a lot) so now you all know why I use stacking for such images.

Wow, such a lot of detail and colouring, makes me wonder if the colours assist in mating selection - no idea what the hairs might be for, then must slow flying down.

It's a good single shot Ade - it's all about the eyes in this and you have them sharp and more importantly you have got them well lit. Nice one.Smile
