At first I didn't know what you mean by "mirrored" but I now see that in fact the far right side of the image has somehow duplicated in reverse. I can only assume that when I created the composite I didn't do it correctly and the software did something weird. A simple crop will fix the problem.

Wonderful photo!

Did you use extension tubes or anything to get this magnification?

How do you get this much dof with 4.5? I am playing around with macros but really can't get as much in focus as you have here! HELP!

This was shot with an old beat-up Nikkor 80-200 f4.5 AIS push pull lens and an 4T diopter. Manual focus, trial by error exposure on my D90. Biggest problem was waiting for any slight breeze. Heavy tripod and remote shutter release, mirror delay. Total investment in optics, around $70.00.
