Thanks for the advice Dave.
I remembered an hour or so ago that I have an old Vivitar wide angle adapter with macro lens stashed in a tub in the shed, left over from my first video camera back in 1988. I've dug it out and bodged it onto my 18-55mm kit lens on the 350D. Not exactly state of the art, but worth a try to see what this macro stuff is all about.
I've just spent half an hour in the garden, and realised that at 55mm, you have to get VERY close to the little beasties that are your subject! Too close for my liking with the spiders I tried!
The 100mm would take it out to a more comfortable distance I hope!
Will post some shots in a while, just for jollies.

Cheers,
Jason.
