Steph, thanks for the comment. I checked out your gallery and see that you like macro photography, too. It is so cool to bring the tiny world to much, much bigger than life size, isn't it? I'm sure you're going to love your Coolpix. It is a great camera. I look forward to seeing more of your photos! Keep shooting, and thanks again. Jay #5187793
