Morpho aega pseudocypris

The colurs of Morpho butterflies are stunning, but photographing Morpho wingscales are new to me. This is a photo of what I expected a Morpho to look like – a didius argentiferus from the Swedish Natural History Museum It turned out that, at least some, Morphos can be quite difficult to photograph. This is a […]


Fireworks are interesting and quite fun to photograph. It can be difficult to find the right settings for the camera. To short and all you catch is some sparks. To long and the entire picture is overloaded with fireworks. For the blue explosion 0.6 seconds was enough but the red flowers needed 13 seconds. Another […]

This makes it possible to take photos that usually only can be acquired at early mornings or late evenings. This is a lunch time panorama, pointing the camera […]

Compensating variation an old trick – and another Cross eyed stereo

This is a Nikon microscope plan apo 20x, NA 0.75, 160mm objective. The working distance is quite short 0.64 mm according to a Nikon brochure. This lens is not intended to be used without a coverslip.
