This is focus stack of dead insect (found it under window). Captured with my usual "snowflake" macro setup (i described it in article about snowflake macro photography). 120 source RAW photos was used (20 groups with different focus, each group contains 6 identical shots for averaging).

Daylight from window at left side, diffused through white plastic bag, and reflected from opposite side with foil. Background: light blue paper.

Details in 1:1 scale:
