After my earlier garden explorations
, where focus stacking was used a little, in a manual implementation, when the iris began to bloom, I returned to the garden, but this time with a focusing rail, ready to do things correctly.

I was fortunate that the morning was almost breathless, as the tall plant was quite prone to waiving in the wind...but with some patience, and a lot of "oh well, let's start again", I managed to make a number of very pleasing focus stacks - mostly of details of the lovely flower.

The most obvious outcome of the exploration of focus stacking with living subjects is that repetition is the name of the game - but I also wonder about getting some power cords, and trying the Stackshot
- I suspect it would be faster than working manually, and while working with a laptop outdoors would have challenges, it might just be worth the hassle!
