nice shot...how did you get it to focus?

I'm assuming you were a little bit away and were zooming in..if tryed this with bees and flowers and the flower is always out of focus.. i mean...if i try to take a still from the flower 1-2m away zoomed in so just about only the flower is in the viewfield i can't get it to focus on it

what photo mode do you use etc?

Hey orion, Im really new at all this so, I dont speak the tech-speak. Im using the FZ35 with the 55 close up lens. I guess its about 12-18 inches from the subject and the camera is set on the macro postition on the dial.

Heres my Bee/flower shot

Was this with an FZ 38/35? I cannot get into the techno speak either and i am new too so what is a 55 lens? not sure if you mean you have bought another lens to fit on to the camera or it is a way of taking shots already on the camera. sorry to sound an idiot.lovely shots though, oh if only...
E.
forgot to add, if you did buy a lens - what make etc, details please, lol.

The LC-55 is a good close-up lens and it is available from www.amazon.com here in the USA. It requires a closer working distance, which some users don't prefer. The other option in good lighting is to zoom in from a distance.
