The compound eyes look super, the post-processing must have been challenging with that many images

The detail in your resulting image brings an entirely new meaning to ascetics, from the pattern of fine bristles on the inter-eye area, to the different colored segments of the antennae. Well done!

You have developed an amazing process with these super close-ups- wonderful detail and a wild look to this one...even if it is dead. Very educational.
