    Really great series, I have a talent for macro. This one is my favorite, very well done.

    All of these are focus stacked, the firmware update on the em1 with this stacking option was really great, of course the conditions have to be very very right, especially the wind can be very annoying, one slight breeze can create some sort of a halo around the subject

    What does 1 van 1 mean in your description? Does that mean you were shooting at 1:1?

    Are you using a tripod? Even bracing with a walking stick it would be impossible for me to hold steady long enough for a focus stack.
