    Just read this post today.
    Funny, I was playing around with my Canon 60mm macro yesterday, and took a short video of some ants at work in my backyard.
    I saw a small line of them, and so I put down a piece of food from my cats' bowl, and watched them go at it.
    Looks small on you-tube, but the full file is amazingingly clear.
    Sorry for the bad focus, as i was handholding the camera and adjustingthe focus manually.
    Next time, I'll use a smaller lens opening to get better DOF.

    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.
