It was not intentional! I was lying down shooting some more dandelion shots (before they get mowed tomorrow!) when our cat (another "dandy -lion") suddenly appeared in front the lens and the focus locked onto it. And that was it - the cat wandered off to do more interesting catty things - it never lets me get this close with a camera normally - maybe it didn't realise it has macro focusing capability ...:tongue: This links to a small image- can't get the link to the album image working. It is a very detailed 6MP photo from the my ist DL with the kit 18-55 zoom.
