Jack o'lantern mushroom by ewm Jack o'lantern mushroom by ewm
Mom and I found these on our way home from campus. They are gathered around a large tree in the neighborhood park. There were several clusters of them ringing around the base of the tree. An interesting fact about these are they have the same chemical found in fireflies that make the gills of this fungus glow in low light :o sounds cool!

500D eh, you're advanced! don't you mean 300D?

:giggle: 500D is not a camera ;)
It is a close up filter basically a big chunk of magnifying glass that works wonders at getting closer especially if added to a macro lens ;)
[link] <- there is a list of the Canon close up filters including the 500D
Here is a photo of the 500D on a 100 mm macro [link]

oh... interesting. i thought you were supposed to get a higher zoom lens to zoom in... or a teleconverter. how does this method stack up with the others?

When I mean closer I mean you are able to focus closer so if the lens I have can only focus as close as 1 ft away with the 500D I could focus maybe about 6 inches closer. A teleconverter makes the lens closer than it normally would be without you moving. If you put a 1.4x Teleconverter on a 300mm lens it becomes a 420mm.
