    Thanks alot! I find when i'm abit bored macro helps me concentrate, the discipline of taking each shot with no camera movement, the setup and great feeling when seeing the final product.

    I have no idea what these are but first is growing in our garden and second indoors.

    Excellent stacking,, are you stacking outside with the first image? Do you use any extra lighting or flash?

    No flash, but a bright light right up against it and a rail slider. Twisting the knob ever so slightly as to almost not move at-all.

    Using a motorised rail seems almost like cheating, enjoy the challenge.

    I went to photograph the Stags at Bradgate Park, and was laying down on the grass with my Camera Lens resting on my bag, about 30 or 40 metres away from a Red Deer Stag. He then started moving towards me and trotted to about 10-15 feet away... he stopped when he saw me, startled, he stared at me for what must have been 10 seconds of pure intensity.

    I rattled off some shots and then he started coming closer. I looked away to my right as he started walking to my left, I looked back at him and he stopped and stared at me. I froze and then looked away to my right as he stood there eyeballing me, being careful not to move, he eventually moved onwards and then stopped again, by now I couldn't look at him.

    For a moment I thought the worst, this is a beast of a specimen, huge tearing antlers, fuelled full of testosterone and weighing 240kg for good measure. I knew he had been ushered away by an even more dominant Stag protecting his harem moments earlier. Did he feel bitter about it? Did he want to take it out on me? It crossed my mind as I lay there as motionless as I could. One of the most intense moments of my life and certainly the most intense I have ever felt doing photography. What a moment!
