Thanks all!! I used the 100 2.8 macro..just got it this week:)
Setup was pretty simple since I could not wait to use my lens.
Put a Cookie sheet across my kitchen sink, let the water from faucet drip (barely). 1st one put a spongebob color book behind pan, 2nd mickey mouse plate I just bought at target, and 3rd was a princess color book and then on manual focus, shot away. I had my 580 ex II on camera and one to camera left aiming at water. I did not have my tripod, it was up at my studio, so when I get it and use shutter release, I might get some better ones:)
