Thanks All.

Focus stacking is a digital image processing technique which combines multiple images taken at different focus distances to give a resulting single image with a much greater depth of field (DOF) than any of the individual source images.

I tried with a woodlouse the other day, but it didn't quite work. It kept getting up and walking away! Well done, much better than my efforts.
