After a heavy rain the other day I went out to see if I could find some interesting subjects with water drops to photograph. I wanted to use Image Stacking for more detail in the water drops and main subjects, but still have softer backgrounds. This is one of the first subjects I came upon. I was using a Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro lens on a Canon R. These are all handheld because it was difficult to get the view I wanted using a tripod. The featured image is 13 images shot from left to right @ f/2.8. Each image in the panorama series is manually focused for the area needed in focus as I shot along the subject to keep a softer cleaner looking background.

I photographed this Bleeding Heart with 3 vertical, handheld shots. Then combined them in Photoshop for the final composition. Instead of backing up to frame the shot to fit everything in, then cropping, I chose to keep more detail by shooting this as a vertical panorama.
