Su Sana E. P 7/19/2006 8:22:07 PM

Perfect catch with fantastic wide crop, Ronald!! Don't you just love doing close ups and macros? #3051722

Ronald F. Fischer 7/19/2006 8:32:28 PM

Thank you very much Susan; I certainly do enjoy close up work and macros! I have found that it is much easier to get flying insects with my 70-200 Canon L f/4 lens. I can sit back about 4 feet from the subject, with the lens at 200mm, and get a pretty decent close up! #3051758

Kay E. Mahoney 7/19/2006 8:36:36 PM
