The camera is amazing...the operator is far from :hmm3grin2orange: I even managed to get a picture of a finger print on the glass...

Can't wait for the macro lens to arrive tomorrow afternoon...of course I'm last on the delivery round for the courier....what was that about patience and virtue :hmm3grin2orange:

Oh, that shimmery blur in the 2nd photo is a diamond tetra who just couldn't stay out of frame...the camera: Canon 450D, Rebel something or other on the N America market.

May I also mention that even with a good camera (and crap operator) it takes about 100 shots to get one or two good ones.

200 shots for a few good ones is the norm,so I thought!

Thanks everyone...perhaps I have a hidden talent LOL Being used to point and shoot, I won't tell you how long it took to figure out that there is no button to zoom -- I thought there was something wrong with the camera :hmm3grin2orange: I don't think I will sleep tonight knowing the macro is on it's way.

Awesome!! That diamond tetra in the background looks like holographic wrapping paper, it just gave me flashbacks to Christmas :18:
