    Whilst mightily impressive I personally prefer Thomas Shahan's stuff.

    Gazza's? :D
    It's not proper macro if they're dead. Much less skill involved.

    Yes... they were all specimens from (I think) The Natural History Museum. The video is pretty neat. The reason for the 10K images per finished photo is the thin DOF with the microscope. Basically taking focus stacked images something like 10 microns apart. Am guessing he didn't process them all manually afterwards. In the video you do see him comping the final images from various sections of the insect.
