Nice detail! Have you attempted photographing it using a dark background? I think it might work well.

Have a look at this: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3295&p=29145#p29145

What an astonishing structure ... it almost looks 'assembled' rather than grown.

Must learn more about these rove beetles !

That structure blows me away! Who knew that it looked like that?

Great detail and stack.

I agree with 75, a dark background would be an interesting image as well.

Nicely done Kit.

You set me off on a voyage of discovery, Kit

At last I have found something which takes us beyond your wonderful optical image:

The second photo is a montage, and it merits careful study !
