Hi Karen, its a really really great shot! I wanted to ask what lens did u use? I have the same camera and am interested in getting a macro lens. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask you. Sorry if it isn't. Thanks! #1074253

Karen Engelbreth 1/31/2005 1:14:52 AM

Thank you very much, John.
I've used a Canon 100mm macro lens.
