You are doing great close-ups with the "toy" you have, Mary.

This image is proof.
Mary MacADNski: It is not much more than a toy. THanks, Ray.

I don't know how you could improve this with a different camera. Look at all that detail you've captured!
Mary MacADNski: Sharper lenses would be the first thing that would improve shots.

Not my favourite subject but you have captured him so well Mary. Great close-up
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Aussie. You're too kind.
That's some spider Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Yes but it's not as big in real life.
Start saving your pennies. Cameras don't make the shot but they can sometimes get in the way of a shot.
Very nicely composed shot and that is up close and personal.
Mary MacADNski: I have an almost new Canon SLR but who the heck would buy it. I was crazy to buy it myself.
I believe that you have secured a good capture, in spite of which you say of the camera, Mary! wink
Mary MacADNski: You are very kind, Jose Angel.
Great close up shot Mary,the detail is fantastic,!!!!!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Jimmy. You're very kind.
Crikey I havent got a spider that close and I have a macro lens!
Mary MacADNski: There were so many around about a month ago looking for winter lodging. They were everywhere.
