I think this was a small crane fly, before it became prey to a spider on a bedroom window board (inside).

Some things I noted from within....

The facets of an eye.
A bunch of legs, gathered together.
The iridescence of a wing.
And... is that an egg in there?

(It's about 10mm "high")

Thanks for looking,

Superb, as usual.

How on earth did you manage to get something so fragile into position in front of the camera??

Thank you, Steve.

I would think that, in a small unit such as this, spiders' silk comes into it's own in the strength/weight dept.!

So. a fine, black insect pin with its point superglued perpendicularly into the back of the package, pointing back, away from the lens along its axis, with a 90 degree downward bend into & held by a spring clothes-peg.

All against a "distant" black foamboard b/g, kept well out of the way of the flash, mounted left of the lens.

All from 25 images focus stacked in Combine ZP, thence Elements 11

All solid as a rock........

The more I look, the more there is to see!

It's worked remarkably well, as usual.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
