The contrast of the fuzzy back sprout makes the sharpness of the front one look ever more impressive! Love your technique!

Lovely! I see you're using extension tubes, no wonder you stack so many!

Thanks. Yes, the closer you get, the more layers you need. You'll soon find out :D

I don't have extention tubes, just a macro lens and maybe a closeup lens so it won't be as detailed as what you do, but I suspect I'll like the results just fine.

Any lens will do, Barbara. I'm planning to try both wide-angle and telephoto lenses in a near future. You'll be surprised by the results and it's not hard to do :)

That should be an interesting experiment. I'll be interested to see the results. :)

The wide-angle lens is quite good for stacking. You only need about three shots to get everything in focus from front to back. The telephoto lens, however, was a little disappointing for this purpose. I get much better details using a macro lens. You can see one of my experiments (using a 150mm) here [link]

I have a 90mm macro lens, do you think that is OK?

That one would be perfect, Barbara :)
