    Thanks Wombat and Geoff for the nice comments.

    If all did the same in image quality then I would go for one that offers the most control for the least price.

    thanks Speaklightly, it did have a little saturation boost and sharpened up the centre blossom a little in photoshop. So unfortunately i cant take all the credit. I am pleased with it though.

    Geoff, DiJ, and Allan-

    Many thanks for your contributions. They are all great - high detailed with fantastic colors. Let's hope that we can make this an ongoing thread, as we have so many fine flower macro examples.

    Talking Macro maniac!

    What a cool thread! I bought my new digicam (Olympus C-60) mainly for doing close ups of flowers. I especially like surprising people with the results I can get with this simple little camera.
    Being a professional gardener, I have many opportunities to capture blooms of all sorts, both wild & 'tame'.
    One of my most elusive 'prey' that I managed to capture recently was the wild Calypso orchids that bloomed during a series of Spring storms we had here on the Calif. coast. I found a small 'window of opportunity' between downpours to 'shoot' this wily 'creature'.
    I used my mini tripod, but these orchids are so close to the ground that I mounted the camera sideways & braced the folded-up tripod on the ground to get these shots, so I guess it's sort of semi hand-held. After about an hour & 70+ shots later, I came home muddy, wet & thrilled to have gotten about 10 'keepers' out of the batch.
    I guess this is why some people think photographers are 'kinda nutty' sometimes,huh?
