Thanks Torgny, yes these are lovely tiny flowers. Bugs seem to really like them, too.

Sorry to ask another question Saly.

When you take the shot at 18 - 20 inches, are you using standard AF or AF Macro setting and did you select close-up lens attachment in menu?

When I was testing the LC55, I think the lens had problems auto focusing if I was further away than 35cm (14 inches), but can't remember the setting I set for AF.

SquareOne: No problem, please ask and I will try to answer as much as I can!! I'm always in AF mode when I use the LC55, although I believe the AF Macro setting will also work. I never select the Conversion Lens setting because all it does is to zoom the lens to get past the extension tube so your image doesn't look like you are looking down a tunnel, but you can do that manually. The Conversion Lens setting also disables the flash, and I sometimes like to use the flash.

You will have trouble auto-focusing if you are standing too close, too far, or it's dark. Available light, zoom, and distance to your subject are linked closely when in closeup mode. You have to adjust the zoom and move until you can get the subject in focus.
