Thanks Steve! Thats what makes macro so interesting.....you never know what you are going to get....esp for those tiny fellas!

Really like the A550 for macros.....really kind to my back and need not bend down. DESPITE that, I still get backaches as handholding the camera with flash and lens at odd angles is quite straining! Well....I guess thats some exercise I can get by while doing what I like!

Congratulations tchuanye very good work managing that combo and the limited DOF available to you! Detail, sharpness and colour - are just WOW!

You very cleverly reveal to us the important detail that we usually overlook in the small world we all live in!

How much did you have to pay your models to pose like this? LOL!

Regards Steve
