Stink Bug eggs

I believe these are stinkbug eggs I found on a leaf near our back porch. Taken with the Olympus em1 mark 2, 10mm Kenko tubes, Olympus 60mm macro lens, Raynox 202 and 110 images focus stacked from normal focus bracketing mode.

Ethan, You're getting a lot out of that Oly 60mm lens. A few thoughts: Your original jpeg stack on flickr shows, to my eye, a bit more detail than the crop you've posted here. Any idea where that detail is being lost? I just now did a similar crop, resize, and down-resolving of your file in Photosh...

I am not sure that we have not misunderstood each other.......... I meant the Ebay link to the right Pixco Extension Tubes because I am not sure which ones are said to be working with the teleconverter.

It does work!

First test completed. I'll be providing the unedited stacked JPEGS if you want to view on FLICKR. I took this image below two weeks ago with my Olympus EM1 mark 2, a Kenko 10mm extension tube, the Olympus 60mm macro lens and a Raynox 202 attached to a Raynox 250. Approximate magnification is 3.5x. h...

But when using the tubes you lose a stop or stop and a half of light which really affects the mood and quality of my pictures. Using the 1.4x will definitely give me the results I need if it indeed will work. Remember that when adding a teleconverter, you also lose light. With a 1.4x teleconverter,...

in the first picture, halfway through the wing, the wing suddenly gets a tad darker. That's where the splice is. Yep, painfully obvious once seen. Have to confess, I never even looked that far back. --Rik That's why I redid it and actually in the process grabbed more leaf and feet in the process. T...

Can anyone tell where I spliced them together?? The reason I am asking about whether you can tell where I spliced them together, is because I can see it distinctly, but in my print I ordered, it is not quite as visible. After I started this thread I decided to do another splice at a different part,...
