    This is my first of many half decent macro shots. A BIG step from my point-n-shoot!

    Very nice photo. I tried to take a photo of my blue tang once and ended up with 100s of blue blurs...

    Must agree.

    Can you edit the pic so their is less back ground. Some camera's can do it.

    Favourate- Sony Cybershot- but I killed it when I dunked the lens underwater. Lately using the Canon Eos 350D or the Nokia N95 phone- whichever one is closer or charged
