Roger - Thank you for your kind comments. I totally understand you frustration. There are many days where I try and try and don't get any acceptable results. Some days, the subjects are just too active. Some days, the lighting isn't quite perfect. I still find my FZ35 + LC55 to be the easiest setup when it comes to acceptable images, so I encourage you to keep trying. Don't expect perfect results every time. I have hundreds of "duds" on my SD card that never makes this forum. You may want to practice with your LC55 on a stationery object like a flower, just to get used to the distance and zoom. Once you start getting stationary objects in focus, you know what your camera is capable of, and then try the same settings on bees.

Cool shots saly, I've never seen anything like the grey hairstreak. I really like the blue dragonfly.

Thanks Mick. The hairstreak is a tiny butterfly and easy to miss, but they are very pretty up close. The backside of their wings are grayish blue.
