@ jgorneau, it usually takes longer to produce an acceptable result in making a focus stacked image. As a rough estimate, it may take me about 60 seconds to complete a series of 30 shots. Then it would take about 1-2 hours to focus stack and post process the images which would result in a single focus stacked image similar to the first photo above. Hth. =)
@ Carolina, thank you so much for the ID. I also found a YouTube video here:
Thanks everyone. =)

Fabulous macro Albert!

WOW, the detail, it's as if feathered... and the eyes, as if it had personality.
