Default Garden Wild Flowers

I planted some wild flower seeds in my garden to attract bees and butterflies. These are all that has grown so far so snapped them this afternoon.
Comments and advice welcome.
Oh and if you have any PP advice i could use that too.
What size do you normally post? These are 8 inches so are they too big?

#1 and #4 are really nice, Eysha. If you are using 'sports' mode as default, I suggest you change it, because that mode is only for fast movement shots. iA and P modes would be ideal for learning. By observing what settings the camera chooses in these modes, we can experiment by altering these settings in A,S and M modes. I personally feel that other than these (P,A,S,M) and the Macro mode, all the other modes on the dial are not necessary at all.

Thanks Raghu, i used macro on those shots but i do find i like sports mode the best as i shake a bit so the fast setting helps me. I have never been able to alter the Appature on the P mode or the A mode or M mode so i find the controlls fiddly and uncomfortable. Would like the FZ200 and would be two up from my old 38 buy will have to wait until the price comes down a lot i think.
