Thank you all so much. Yes, I really like my little TZ3. Sometimes I wonder why I have invested in those expensive cameras i also use.

Yes, a little tripod for the tele end and you are set. The new Panasonic LX3 might be something to complete with. I t may take even better close ups for the really small motives and has got a larger sensor

Great caterpillars, Caryl

Nice pictures. This is a large silkworm moth caterpillar -- something like a Cecropia Moth or the related Ceanothus Silk Moth. Nice find, too.

Thank you all so much. The Panasonic TZ3 is amazing and has a 10X optical zoom and a leica lens. It has been updated but not improved so it can be purchased for under $200! the LX3 does not have a 10X zoom.
