    I am glad you showed that link....I "borrowed" my parents camera and it is a canon rebal. It has the standard lens and the zoom lens (75-300) but was not macro. I went to ebay to look for macro lenses and found those attachments and then found the actual big lens (several hundreds). I was wondering if those attachments work..AWESOME!

    Nicely done Scott! Your next purchase should be a tripod if you don't already have one :)

    Nice Pictures! Makes me jealous since I have a nice camera but no money to get a nice Macro lens to take some real close ups! I have the Canon S5IS powershot!

    It is kind of hard to hold the camera still and change all the setting for the best shot. Might look into one.

    Very nice- you'll be asked to donate to the 3reef calendar project (it's still in the planning, er...thought stage!)

    Nice shots Otty. I've got a tripod if you want to borrow it for a while. Maybe see if you like it or not. ;D
