In the course of correspondence with an entomologist pal, I discovered that there is an official nomenclature for describing the various surface textures on insects. Who knew?
If this link fails then try Googling “ a glossary of surface sculpting, Harris 1979” and that may provide a downloadable link of a the small PDF.
The illustrations in this glossary are 1979 vintage SEM black and white Polaroid captures from the SEM display. Members of this forum often do much better optically, in color. Got to love stacking!
The nomenclature is concise and interesting.
A forum to ask questions, post setups, and generally discuss anything having to do with photomacrography and photomicroscopy.
