More Eyelash Envy.......

By Ade_Osman    
This image is a companion shot to an image I uploaded a week or so ago Eyelash Envy Only this time it's a different shot of a different specimen of the same species, a Muslin Moth. In this one I used more images in the stack (35) so as to get more details in the hairs behind the antennae. I did think about calling the image "Having a Bad Hair Day" for obvious reasons Wink

Thanks for looking in again and thanks to all for your kind comments on the Wife's recent upload, I think I've convinced her to start using EPZ more than she has been, so hopefully you'll get to see some more of her work, especially some of her good bird images, which she takes while I'm rooting around in the undergrowth looking for macro specimens Tongue

Regards to all as always......Ade

Fabulous fluffy detail and eyelashes that Kate Moss would be proud of, this is yet another outstanding macro Ade. I bet you had real trouble getting this moth to comply with your demands during this photoshoot, as being a Muslin moth it would refuse to be plied with Blackthorn cider!Tongue

What's Michael Jordan got to do with it Ronnie?! I'm confused, I think you will find it was Dennis Rodman who used to wear make up and dress like a laydee!WinkGrinTongue

Absolutely cracking shot Ade - the extra dof from the bigger stack was certainly worthwhile although I am not sure that i would ever have your patience.
Nice one
