Default The first 10 Min. with my new ZS7

First of all I would like to thank everyone on this forum for helping me in deciding on my P&S purchase. I am usually a Canon guy and have mostly Canon DSLR's and lenses, but I was in the market for a P&S on the "powerful" side. Looks like this Pany ZS7 will do the trick. Picked it up for $283 from Buydig.com (the BLUE colored version). It was a few bucks more than the silver model but I wanted a colorful one.
Bought an extra battery also for $25 (yeah could have gotten it cheaper on eBay, but the battery is important- don't want a melted camera with a fake battery). And also purchased a 16GB Sandisk Ultra (class 4) for $40.
Anyway, my 20th shot that I took during my 15 min. break at work is attached. Right out of the box- all default settings. A little ant up close and personal!
I used the Zoom Macro mode but probably should have just used the plain Macro and it would have been sharper I think.
I had to re-size it so the forum would allow the attachment size. I used the software that came with the camera because it seems like it kept ALL of the EXIF info after resizing.

I think it a good shot , and for as far I heard, when using Macro Zoom, the subject should fill the whole frame, give it a try and post it here
