	Thomas Eichlin asked for information about the use of digital
cameras for butterfly photography.

	I have been using a Sony Mavica MVC-FD7 for photographing spread
specimens with good results. The camera has macro capability--no add-on
lenses needed.

	I use two halogen lamps with diffusing screens, and then have to
make a color correction to achieve the equivalent of daylight illumination.
A friend who just got the same camera has gotten good color with a fluor-
escent ring light.
