Then the Sigma APO 70-300 would be a great entry level choice since it has Macro capability from 200-300mm. It's not 1:1 magnification but a great way to get involved in both it and telephoto. Combined with the Canon IS lens, you'd be set for a long time.

One of the guys brought up an interesting point about the
telephoto. I will be taking a lot of candid shots as well as shots
of nature so I want to get a close picture without actually getting
close. At the same time, I'm also fascinated by the macro
photography that you guys have been doing on insects, etc.. I guess
I can make those spiders around here actually useful for something
other than scaring the hell out of me. So I will be taking
pictures at both extremes.
