What a colour - you make my wife envious as any acid loving plant is a no no in my alkaline beach sand....Love your latest bird shots on the other forum, particularly that flying heron...Fred

the Nikon 6T is a 2.9 diopter close-up lens that screws onto an adapter, and lets the FZ20 take shots using full 12x zoom from about 13" from the subject. normally, at that distance, the camera won't focus beyond 1 or 2x. the 6T lets you get more "macro" without getting as close, which is really handy for photographing things like flowers, insects, etc.

i'm not sure the 6T is made anymore.. i heard rumors it had been discontinued. Nikon also makes the 5T (same lens, but only 1.5 diopter - not as strong in terms of magnification), and also the 3T and 4T, which are the same as the 5T and 6T, but with 52mm threads instead of 62mm.

what camera do you have?

Squirrl, thanks for that explanation, I also wondered what the advantage of the addon lens for macros was.

Now thats great colour and sharp details. Excellent work and shot. One very hard colour to get correct either on a CCD or film. Gotta love this one

Danny.
