I think I have the lighting figured out now. Still some work to do on cleaning, but on the whole I think a satisfying focus stack. Pin and some dust and fibres have been removed with software. This is a 24 image stack was completed in Zerene Stacker. I let the far end of the wing fade into a blur to give it a more authentic look and used a dappled background to avoid that poster-board flatness that is found in many images. Currently working on the same bee with a 50 image stack to see how they compare.
