This is a focus stacked magnified image of a Leaf Footed Bug Nymph that I found on the vines of the kennel building today. The limbs are translucent and the hairs are just starting to cover its body. The adults will have a dense covering of short hair over its entire body. You can also see its proboscis in this view which it uses to suck up the juices.

How do you manage to get better each time, sippy? Great image stack.

Thanks, Kpmac. I owe it all to trial and error. A whole lot of trial and a whole lot of error. The key is to try something different each time and eventually something is bound to work.

Thanks, Doc. I always try to bring out the small details of the specimens for those who enjoy seeing them.
