Oh yeah, there's a face for radio. I got quite a kick out of the expression on this dude's face.

The magnification was so strong for this setup that I was unable to use full magnification for most things. I wanted to try one, and this is pretty close to an EFFECTIVE equivalent of around 5.4x magnification. (72/80 x6)

As has been discussed in the forums, this is not true magnification according to the definition of the word. True Magnification is around 0.9x, but crop factor allows a 6x. This is little different from calling a 300mm on a 300D equivalent to a 480mm setup.

Pretty wild stuff I think.

You're going to be a string contender for the next macro challnege, whenever that comes up. Awesome detail.

edit: please substitute "strong" for "string".

Nailed this one. It shows a fly in its all its fascinating splendor. Who would have know they could be more than a nuisance? Nice shot and i really like the dark colors(natural coloring, i think). Like it a lot.
