I got so few rasberries this year and the damn ants kept steeling them!!!!!

Figured i woud catch them in the act. I really need a macro lense... I keep having to use my 55-255mm lens and I just can't get those close ups I really want... Wonder if i sit downtown with a cup infront of me and a sign that reads "Will dance for a macro lens" will work? :shrug:

I don't think they are steeling your raspberries, they are more looking for aphids. You can try a close-up filter lens until you get your macro lens.

They actually are steeling the rasberries, I can't explain it, but as soon as they turn red they start to get eaten.

They do hurd aphids, but only on my fruit tree. I spray everthing with aphid spray to keep them at bay...

Ants completly run my yard. Underneath everything is sand. EVERYTHING
The only thing they actually do good for me is take care of my pianese flowers...

I used the Canon 500D and 250D close-up filters on the Powershot Pro1, each are about $150.00CAN.
What brand is your lens ... or what diameter?

You can also take a look here:
raynox dcr-250 - Google Search (http://www.google.ca/images?um=1&hl=en&biw=1664&bih=851&tbs=isch%3A1&sa=1&q=raynox+dcr-250&aq=f&aqi=g1&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=)
You get a pretty good magnification and a fairly gut quality with that lens. I used it on the S5 IS.
I had the Hoya close-up lens set too, but there was much chromatic aberration.
