Here is one for a new page. Menopodinae; Amblycera; Mallophaga. Taken from a female House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus). This was shot with a Canon 65mm 1x-5x at 5x. The trade offs between depth-of field and aperature sharpness are at the limit. Specimen has been saved (70% ETOH) and available for placement in a collection.
