Images at Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History

A few of my images were shown at the Santa Barabara Museum of Natural History during the exhibit " Science and Beauty: the Orchid Evolves" in 2014.

The overall view of the plant was shot with a regular dSLR and Zeiss Makroplanar 100 mm f/2.8 ZE. The enlarged flowers is a z-stack of 42 images on a Zeiss Discovery V12 stereomicroscope, processed in ZereneStacker. The B&W image was taken on a scanning electron microscope (Zeiss EVO 40XVP) in variable pressure.
