Awesome macro photography Carol, V1 is my choice for the extra detail, the site is better today! I sent a message asking why the site was slow and had a message back today stating they do not know why, a great answer from a business that only keeps going because we pay. Wonder what they would think if everyone decided to stop paying and just stay on here as a free member!

Regards

Trev.
