Thanks a lot for the information!
For small un pinnable insects I have used eye drops (methylcellulose).

Very nice, and a good proof of concept. When I try to take photos of objects in water I have some trouble keeping them in one location. Not having such delicate and uniqe specimens that you have I use to pin them down. Do you have any tricks to hold your orchides in place? Best regards Jörgen Hellberg

Re: Flash(es) recommendation

I think that's more than acceptable, but I would like to make sure there are no vibrations affecting sharpness at those critical magnifications. Indeed - very nice pictures! I have also tried to use flash on butterfly scales some years ago. https://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=189...

Crosed eye stereo Queen of Spain fritillary (Issoria lathoni

First some heavily cropped pictures of some dust. http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/userpix/3238_test_2.jpg Pr...
