The trouble with quick and dirty is that the dirty remains after the quick is gone.

Thank you Rik, it has been awhile since I posted anything, so a bit rusty.

Best Regards,

These are cool little bugs, with interesting textures. They also tend to sit very still for long periods, and so are good subjects. You can even focus stack a live one, as you show nicely here.

Thanks Mark, the habits of live ambush type critters is certainly a better fit with stacking than most.
