Or, why I love my Nikon 990! It's a great macro camera! I noticed this baby bug crawling along the picnic table in my back yard. This was taken in manual mode in natural light. You'll notice the 'log' (1-2mm pine needle) put in the shot for scale... ;^)

Pic itself was reduced in size and run through the Photoshop 'Auto Levels' filter. I did forget to switch from center weight on the focus setting, which is why only the middle is sharp.
