Some tachinid head close-ups

Here are a few of my latest stacks showing some nice tachinid head close-ups. Most were all taken using the Nikkor EL 50mm f2.8 lens reversed on bellows 🙂

    Excellent detail and lighting – I reckon you are well below 5 microns per pixel. Remember the wavelength of light is not far off at half a micron! The tiny hair scales which make up the pubescence are probably at that dimension, which is probably why they reflect so well.
