They are good, but has a lot of noise for my tastes. You shouldn't go beyond ISO 400, and in this case where the subject is static, you should increase the shutter speed instead of increasing the ISO value.
Looks like the first ones were taken with ISO 1600. Not good.
If you're handheld and think the pics will be blurred, just shot 3 of the same subject, i can shoot a macro with speeds of 1/13 without blurring problems, but i always take 2 or 3 pictures just in case one gets blurred. For telephoto, i can shoot with speeds as low as 1/30. Also, there's the alternative to shoot RAWs, which can be heavily denoised. JPEGs at ISO1600 are unusable, but RAWs are somewhat okay if you're going to downscale it.
Overall they are good, nice exposure, sharpness and i loved the composition of the first and the bokeh of the second one, i like smooth and delicate bokehs, not that overblurry thing everyone does . Also, i'm not sure, but if you're using that "i.resolution" thing, make sure to turn it off!!

That's an amazing flower - really well captured, except for the noise issue which is really obvious in the background fence in the first shot.

Good series ujef. good composition and exposures

I don't know how electrolyte comes up with ISO1600, it would be a lot worse at that high. But low light is where FZ40/45 suffers

Good colors, but I also agree about the noise. Was it very dark, and were you using high ISO? I try to stay under 400 with my FZ35.

Saly, Square one & Electrolyte,

About the noise:
Saly/Square one; y'all are right about the light. It was a cloudy evening and no sun at all.

Electrolyte; All of your guesstimates were totally wrong.

I just tested on A mode, ISO 100 (all images), WB (adj g4/b3), -1/3EV and let's see how the images come out in this situation. I loved that the color turned out pretty good.
I hope these images didn't make y'all confused...lol.
