The Stinger of a Creature

This is a proof of concept post, so please disregard the quality of the capture itself. The concept is to start to try and show far more on the website in high-resolution and detail. This does mean that captures need to be taken bit-by-bit and then stitched into one higher-quality image. This is known as stitching, in addition because this specific image is fairly large it actually required around 10 images across the Z axis just to get everything in some level of detail.

All in all, there are the best part of 100 photos that make up this image, about 10 or so across X/Y, and for each of those another 10 along the Z. In order to focus stack to capture the biting apparatus I used Helicon Remote and Focus. It was then stitched into one image using Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE).
