The pictures here where made using bench mounted setup using bellows, some strange lenses and a microscope stage to adjust focus. At this magnification the depth of field is very small and focus stacking is essential. Each of these examples consists of between 100 and 300 frames assembled in software to get an in focus shot.
The first picture is of a match head, it looks so very different from what we see with the naked eye.
Insects are difficult to set up for photography but also rewarding. This next shot is of an earwig antenna and you can just see it's eye in the corner.
Finally we have the corner of a beetle's head and pretty unfriendly it looks too!
I would be happy to explain more about technique and equipment if anyone is curious.
