First pic is another stereo image, it’s of some kind of tree flower. The next is a section showing the pollen area in it, the third is a stink bug that wondered into my room. I’m sure most people are familiar with the size of a stink bug so the image shows how big my field of view is with my setup. The final photo is an oribatid mite at around .6mm long. The tarsal claws are visible, I think they have 3 claws but it’s hard to tell if it’s a claw or setae im seeing.

Here are some new ones, the first one is a little surprising for me. I post my images to Reddit occasionally and this first ant portrait got over 65,000 upvotes there. I’ve never gotten anywhere near that many before and someone also wrote a little article about it! It’s funny to me because I take photos like this all the time so they don’t look that special to me and then one gets a lot of attention, I forget not everyone is used to seeing things this close haha! 042180F0-C5FD-4857-BB13-88533140D363.jpeg 7AE383BA-514D-4D46-A07F-39C2D50A37E4.jpeg 96272EFE-6D0F-4D92-B876-0CAB101B11F0.jpeg C92963D4-B4C1-42EC-AF36-EA4BB73BA6F5.jpeg 34924548-1AC2-4038-9A66-AF2B6C5FE942.jpeg

Congratulations on the article! Well-deserved I must say. The level of patience that goes into this level of macro photography is incredible.

Thanks,

Thank you :)

I recently got a microscope but I haven’t gotten the stuff needed to take photos through my microscope yet with my camera. I’ve been using my phone though and I’ve found tons of cool stuff! 173B59E2-90A1-4511-B939-575EDAA2DF0A.jpeg EE39D827-1E67-4F95-BDD9-F1D036B493CB.jpeg 76D521C5-EE97-4BD7-A25F-96210799CAC3.jpeg E0E34CDD-C241-4EE3-9973-962EB993609C.jpeg A01B68FC-6C3D-4D23-809F-AB862F973744.jpeg 421B71C9-9707-4980-9952-D73C55899668.jpeg 651642F4-2C8C-4D58-BA16-EB9021F56F40.jpeg 79390F7A-8A52-4DF5-852C-AF2B14AEF960.jpeg B1933767-862C-4DB9-8AFD-E57B1B4F2ACA.jpeg F546946A-E03B-4AA1-8109-3B6915D08D33.jpeg
