These are very good! The angle is a bit high on some but I suspect that is a result of having to view the animals from above. I love 1 and wonder if a bit of fill flash would have made it even better.

Thanks for the kind words...yes fill flash would have made #1 much better! Still learning...I was concentrating so hard on not using flash for any of the ZS7 shots that I forget it is exceptable and makes better photos in certain situations and that was certainly one of them!

Hi, What were the settings you used on the camera for the shots please?
I am really amazed with the picures. Really nice and sharp. I just got my TZ10 and I really would like to test out some manual settings.

Thanks

Go to this link...Click on Actions...View EXIF info...
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4817490774/

Set your ZS7 under Menu...PICT.ADJ.:
Contrast 0
Sharpness +1 or +2
Saturation +1
Noise Reduction -2

Set Intelligent ISO Maximum ISOMAX 400

Insure you use a Breathing Tecnique for taking photos...depress shutter button halfway and insure you are focused with green box...then slowly/gently depress shutter fully WITHOUT moving the camera for maximum sharpness...
