    Wow that is seriously stunning - in the latest Australian Photographer/phy magazine there is an article on a book published by a Husband and wife team who spent many months photographing the wildflowers of Western Australia with this technique.
    He was the Photographer, She did all the focus stacking processing computer work.....it looked a lovely book from the review....I will try and find a link/image to show you...

    ......found it Wildflower Country

    Their website is wonderful, and their images look absolutely stunning. I'm pretty good at getting clarity and colour, but theirs make my shots look amateur league. I can't get over that shot of the male Caasowary - are they really that vivid and colourful?

    They seem very keen on stacking. I'm going to have to look at this more over the next few days, but thank you very much for the link. I recommend others to take a look.

    It's so beautiful! So fresh and simple and, yet, there's so much subtle pattern. I like the upper right hand corner cluster of the stalk the best. The shades of blue and softness of the flowers is wonderful.

    Kay, the link is really inspiring and their words are moving.

    You're welcome and my resident native australian tells me sometimes you think the bird is 'just black' but you get a glimpse of the colours, so they have worked hard to capture it.
