Very nice shots, exactly what I wanted Alex to shoot. The garden shot is also beautiful, well done!

I think you did a good job, not easy.

thanks :-)

catalex, i dunno how you get your shots so good! i got a set of close-up lenses, the +1, +2, +4 type things - admittedly cheap, as i didn't want to waste money on hugely expensive stuff if they didn't do what i want. they're the type that screw directly onto the front of the lens. i don't know if they're the same type of thing as your LC55, but i found, handheld, the camera flatly will not focus on anything but the +1. i asked Graham Houghton about it on his Youtube channel as he did a vid about macros and he said a tripod was needed as the focus range becomes very narrow. totally eliminates any chance of me snapping an insect :-/
