Pollen Detail Of White Trillium (trillium Ovatum) version 2

I posted on this a while back, but had not yet finished these images. These are complex to produce because obtaining detail and depth of field at this scale can require 20 to 50 exposures or more. The technique is called focus stacking, and it has revolutionized microphotography in the digital image era.
