Wasn't sure where to post this. Not sure if anyone else has tried this, but I've been doing some 3-D macros. This is a cross eye stereogram.
stare at the pair of pics, slightly de-focus your eyes and cross them until an image appears in the middle- then try to relax your eyes to fix the 3-D image in the brain.
Taken by just moving the camera a cm or two between shots. Just thought it might be of interest.

3D effect is very distinct and good in this pair! Smile
To say, I spent 15-20 min (2-3 months ago) to learn this technique (on photos of mushrooms).
1. You must sit straight in front of the images, distance is ~35 cm.
2. At first, try to cross eyes a little and check two (moving) images of left and right photos. More crossing - less distance between images.
It's good idea to concentrate on some prominent feature (e.g. on fly's eye on this photo).
3. Try to bend your head to the left and to the right and check vertical displacements of these two images.
4. Try to control distance between images and to superpose images of the fly's eye; do this slowly near superposition.
5. Try to keep them superposed for several seconds and wait a little more for clear single image. Don't move the head, don't blink.
6. Try to move your eyes on another parts of the image (legs, bud).

Fun stuff. I almost got a headache doing it, but I did get it in focus. Heck of a job.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

pjt - just send the post and attached image. Do not preview thread, as this will lose the link to the image,

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
