BTW Someone in another forum pointed out that you have an obvious manual possibility with the F20, suitable for closeups.

Pressing the anti-blur button will give you faster shutter speed and thereby a larger aperture if you want shallow(er) depth of field

The second photograph is remarkable - the surface detail of the leaf and shadow detail of the syrphid fly make this an outstanding photograph of an interesting insect. For those who don't know, this is a member of a group of "flower flies" that mimic wasps, yellow jackets and bees. Well done.
