Rik was so gracious to give us the links and the information that goes with them:
This is the video of flying over a forest of moss.  It was created by Mr. Wim van Egmond from only a handful of stacks, by processing each stack repeatedly using Zerene Stacker’s “synthetic stereo and rocking” capability.  There is some discussion of the video at and in the surrounding thread.
Images of the raspberry, the bug eggs, and the parasitic wasp that I talked about.
Discussion of the sunset moth scales.  The surrounding thread has a lot more discussion and images.

One last link that people may be interested in:

This mostly contains links to postings of my own at, that I think I might want to find quickly again.  The list is long — almost 800 bullets at this point, but even so it’s a lot shorter than the total of currently over 19,000 postings that I’ve made into the forum.

The book that I showed off is “Bugs Up Close: A Magnified Look at the Incredible World of Insects”, by Lars-Åke Janzon (author) and John Hallmén (photographer).  ISBN is 1629144827.  Currently available via .  It’s available as Kindle or hardcover; I recommend hardcover.
