Focus on Everything
A photo processing technique called focus stacking electronically combines the sharpest bits of multiple digital images, to allow full focus on a micron scale. Such images made with a microscope camera measure color with new precision, which could aid in understanding the ways tiny animals filter complex sensory stimuli to make decisions important for their survival and reproduction.
Examples of organisms imaged by focus stacking are in the slideshow below. For the full text of the related article, click here.
