    sorry mietek,
    my plant is growing in between others and d.anosmum is hanging over it. lol
    but i measured the longest leaves, max of 10cm, whereas p.unguiculatum reaches 20cm and grows more massive.
    your unguiculatum maybe still a smaller plant i guess.

    yes, they come in all sorts of shapes, most of em grow semi pendulous and others upright, still the same species though and leaves differ accordingly.

    thanks zain,
    i got the fuji hs10 for about 400 us$ and raynox 250 super macro lens for about 60 us$.
    im very happy with the super macro lens so far, you can attach it very easily on cam's with a range of 52-67mm of your lens diameter.
    will post some super macro shots later in "my pets...".

    it brings out the colors and fine subjects much better, like above.

    hi randy,
    its available in stores, but i will pm you where to buy online, saved me 200 us$.
    as for the extra lens, its hard to get here, a friend of mine ordered it on amazon.
    those shots were taken with a tripod, during experimenting stages, and it comes in handy, but actually no need for larger objects and if shutter speed is fast.
    check "my pets..." later, i will post some super macro shots.

    ps, if you ever consider to buy a tripod, pls dont buy cheap crap like i did. lol
