Wow!
Wow! What a nice closeup! Is this with your new camera, Sam? If so, I'd say you got your money's worth.

 
....
Yes it is and thanks! I'm still struggling a little with the really small critters. This pic is not quite as clear as I would like. Notice around the head and eyes....it's a little blurry. I've taken other pics that were much clearer. I think the difference is that for this pic I shot it hand-held without the use of a monopod so there is some camera shake.
I'm still working out all the bugs :-D
