Taken yesterday when the sun appeared momentarily. The big boy in the centre was around 5mm in length. As you can see there was a deficit in the DOF dept. and as they were all so active multiple shots for stacking was not really an option. (Just learned of this stacking thing yesterday and will hopefully have some success with it within my lifetime). Any suggestions as to how I could have improved on my technique would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks for your comments on my image today Wink There is a short explanation of how to keep bugs still in the shot I uploaded yesterday if you're interested? There's no secret to it.....Honestly Guv Wink

Another valiant effort here, they ain't the easiest things to handle I must admit, but if you did want to do a stack on these, use the method I explained yesterday. Although a good tip for you would be to remove the leaf and pot that rather than try and remove individual specimens.....

Keep at it and the results will come I promise you......Patience is the real key with this sort of imagery though, if you need any advice feel free to ask.
