LOL
Oh, but I'm having too much fun with this :^P

 
Well, I feel that I finally,n
Well, I feel that I finally,need to put my 3 1/2 cents in on these images (and quit staring at them) and simply say that these are some of the most strikingly detailed images of critters that I've ever seen, that weren't shot through a high quality microscope or a Scanning Electron Microscope! Beautiful imagery, Scott! You've also made me take that giant step into digital cameras (I still shoot film), and in about a week, I should be getting similar images through the same system, since I just ordered the bloody thing. I can't wait to see our critters, here in Minnesota, under this magnification. Since I first began taking pictures, it's been a dream of mine to get this type of detail, and now, you've shown us all that it's finally, technically possible. Thank you, and I suppose, thank Canon. They're the only ones making this lens.

 
Thank You Very Much Bill!
Good luck with the new system and don't forget to give me a ring if you need any help. I think you will enjoy the ride!
