I think the lighting and diffusion looks great Velmar, the image is wonderful, just a shame that the left wing looks so damaged.
I don't see any problems with the stacking... very well done.

Thanks Jack, most of the insects I photograph are 'donated' by friends who normally find them dead, so that is why the wing seems damaged, it's from the amount of flying that the bee had done in its life. I am always trying different diffusers, in the vain hope that I may find one that would be 'good' for everything, even though I know that this is not possible
