No this was a Panasonic ZS7 which is a P&S hip camera which does an excellent job with macros...I was reaching inside the rose bush with the camera and shooting the pictures so they didn't all come out real well, but was the best I could do to get the shots...

Three beadlike simple eyes form a triangle between the larger compound eyes at the front corner of the head. The compound eyes, like those of other insects, are made up of hundreds of smaller units, each one of which can perceive light or darkness. The resulting image formed by such an eye must be similar to that seen on an old television screen, made up of only black and white dots.

I learned something too!!
