A 30 image stack of a housefly at x2 magnification, fly was euthanised before shooting....

Hedgehog/Fox Update
Very very quiet last night, with virtually no activity at all, I think this was down to the awful weather we had last night. However we did get visit of both species around about 02:00, but of special note was the fact that both the Dog Fox and the Vixen were in the garden at the same time for a very brief few moments. Hopefully things will improve tonight. I've also moved the cameras covering the bird tables during the day and it now gives a much better view. The place to go as always is Ade's Hedgehog and Garden Wildlife Cams

Many thanks for all the kind comments on yesterdays upload, as always, regards to everyone.......Ade

A most excellent image. So detailed and clear. I so admire your patience and mastery of this, to me, mysterious world of stacking. Smile

Gosh! 30 stacks. I'm lucky if I use eight for a flower shot. Very well done, with great detail. Good lens that!
