Green Sweat Bee (Augochlorella aurates)

I found this green sweat bee dead on my screened porch and used it to attempt a large panorama using a 4x microscope objective lens. These lenses are only capable of focusing on a very narrow portion of the scene, requiring the use of a focusing rail to move the camera progressively closer to the subject after each shot. This image is composed of seven such "stacks," with a movement of 20 microns between photos, for a total of nearly 1,000 photos in all. All those photos were then blended on the computer to get a single, highly detailed photograph of the bee.
  • Print Information

    • All open edition prints are produced on archival paper with pigment-based inks for longevity and are hand signed in a 1-inch border surrounding the image.
    • Listed dimensions do not include the border, so the full dimensions of an 8x10 inch print, for example, would be 10x12 inches.
    • Prints are rolled and shipped in a tube.
