Beetle focus stacks

I'm getting better at focus stacking.

Here are a couple of shots of a large-ish black beetle I took this weekend.

I had to crop one of them much closer than I planned because the beetle, which I thought was dead, moved one of it's forelegs slightly during the series, and created a really weird stroboscopic effect in the focus stack. The beetle has since given up the ghost, so I hope to try again.

Sadly, I think I probably accelerated it's demise in manipulating it to photograph it.
