Looks like I need to save up for an LC55 lens!

Thanks!
Phototaker: It's very easy with the LC55, it's a very friendly lens. As long as you have good light (this is the key), and a good subject! I just put it in "P" mode, at ISO 100, stay about 12 - 18 inches back, use spot focus, then zoom in as much as AF allows me to. I also try to pay attention to the background to make sure it's not too cluttered. Then I take a LOT of shots (often shooting 20 - 50 shots of a good subject) to make sure I get a few good ones!

Great shots, Saly. Even the flower (or whatever it is) that the damselfly sits on looks like an insect!
