The fly was quite a way back from the tip of the bud which is why I had to take so many shots (166) but even so I'm quite pleased with the result. I hope you like it too.

Below are separate shots from the start, middle and end of the stack.



And another stacked image of the same flower buds and fly.

Thank you.

I like the steps of your process, especially on the first photo I even have not noticed a fly at all, it was looking like a normal background colour just slightly dark. While developing focus stacking then it is noticeable the fly and flower. Really Love the quality of your Photography!
