This was shot using a 18-55mm kit lens with a reversed 50mm on a 450D. Would just like to share :) . I actually had to borrow a camera and a lens to test this out. Not to say it is any good... but at least I am happy with it. I took this picture months before I have my 30D. Click image for larger less grainy image.

Nice shot,I have those same ixoras in my yard and those little ticks the ant was attacking,I had taken quite a similiar shot with a black ant eating those things on my plant,but it came out blurred so I dumped it.

nice shot... the reason it may be so grainy is because you have sharpened that image quite a bit...

Thanks for all the comments, really appreciate it :)

Found out why the thumbnail was so grainy... used a free image resizer to resize, anyway I got that figured out and replaced the thumbnail.
