Last year, because of the lockdown and restrictions to travels, I have been exploring the wildlife near my area. I have found this sweet spot near my hometown which is filled with all kinds of small wildlife, which is my main point of interest in photography. I found quite a few bugs on top of dandelions the day I took this picture, I don't know if there's any reason behind it, but for me it was a great opportunity to try some compositions. This particular image is the result of focus stacking several images, taken handheld in burst mode, which is my preferred way of taking pictures intended for focus stacking, of live subjects in the field. Luckily enough it wasn't really active so I could easily setup my low angle composition to include some of the sky in the background. The challenge was me being able to keep my composition consistent throughout all the images so that the software wouldn't have too much trouble handling the stacking, so after some trial and error I got the images I was going for.
