Oh stunning..... almost enough pixels on this one (even for me) Kevin

Little water drops and everything. What lens? The 200 zoom? Tubes? Wow......

Awesome matey!

I am jealous!

Thank you, Jethro - much appreciated! Yep, I used the 18-200 on this one. I probably could have gotten a sharper image with the 50 but I just grabbed the camera and ran out the door when I saw that light!! No tubes ... haven't bought any yet.

I've been meanig to get a 'wet' shot of one of those, but you beat me to it. Very nice indeed! About 'tubes': what kind of equipment is that...?

Thank you, Jeroen. I enjoyed laying on the cold, frost-covered grass to get this one! I should have uploaded this one at full size; there is better detail in the photo that it appears here.

Ah, well, those extension tubes seem to be the next best thing since sliced bread. They are simply a hollow tube that fits between the lens and the camera, effectively moving the glass further away from the sensor which effectively increases magnification. Take a look at the first two sections of this article
