Just superb...detail, colour, texture. 10stars! ^)^
...I wonder, what would happen if I attached a 500D lens to my 35mm f1.8 lens? Any ideas, barbara? ^)^

@janina: Thank you, Janina! On the 500D, my suggestion would be to take your camera w/lens to the camera store and ask to try it. Your 35mm should focus pretty closely on its own, but put the 500D on and walk around the store to see how close it would focus. If you want to buy one - I would buy the largest size for any lens you might ever own. All my filters, including the 500D are 77mm because I have 2 lenses that are 77mm. I buy step rings to use the filters on all my other lenses. Saves $$$!

Ymmmm, the colors and curving shapes are simply delicious. The tiny hairs form halos around each petal and leaf. Such a delectable image.
