From macro shots or there around to about 1 meter/ meter and a half away from the subject, since amphibians arent that big or to get a view of the terrarium/pond they are in.

Can I do this with one lense only?

Yes ... a "macro" lens can still focus at infinity (as any lens), but the added advantage that it can get much closer than ordinary lenses.

BUT ... there are two different versions of "macro" lenses, some are called macro but simply focus "closer" (allowing a Field-Of-View (FOV) of around 4", but a TRUE "MACRO" lens can get close enough for a 1:1 image, (about 1" FOV).

how do you photo stack images of live animals ?

Tell em to "Watch The Birdie" ??? (just thought they were nice images he could consider w/ appropriate subjects -- I suggest they are quite incredible images from such a low-priced camera that has options/features few others have)
