Taken in the early morning at Blackmoor Reserve near Charterhouse on the Mendip Hills in Somerset.

This is a 44 shot focus stack processed in Zerene Stacker using a combination of both DMap and Pmax methods.

The fly itself is around 4-5mm in length and the image was taken at about 4 x lifesize using the MP-E65 lens mounted on a linear stage.
