I've never seen macroscopic images as incredibly sharp as these ones

This is a blister beetle photographed with a Macropod—"a low cost, portable, three-dimensional imaging solution" that allows scientists to break the depth of field limitations typical of macro photography by taking multiple exposures and merging them into a single ultra-sharp image using software. » 10/20/14 1:13pm Monday 1:13pm
