    The assignment for this week is Macro If you don't have macro capabilities try and do the best you can with the equipment you have. As always a new assignment will be posted next monday, and try to go and take new shots rather than posting old ones :)

    Heres my contibution. My camera isn't well suited to macro, but it is [just] capable of producing reasonable images at a greater than 1:1 Ratio.

    This is as "macro" as I can go with my little compact digital camera.
    The yellow on top of each pistil measures 1mm, so the fly is only 2mm in size.
    I am not unhappy with the result.
    The entire flower is 3,5 cm in diametre (would that be an inch and a half?)

    You camera hasn't got a macro mode? That's strange. You can always get creative with magnifying glasses as well.

    I happened over this one upon working in the garden, so here you go (and it could enter in the theme "Green" and also "Creepy Crawlies")
