    I know a couple of you have this camera, but I highly don't recommend it. Its the Nikon Coolpix 5700. It is ridiculously unintuitive and having to hold down one button while using another finger to spin a wheel is just plain dumb [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]
    The Sony DSC-707 is so much better and a couple hundred bucks less. Plus it "looks" professional while the nikon looks like a toy. I get to use both of these at work. I also use both of these to take super closeup plant pics. I use the Sony whenever possible. Both cameras give me good quality pictures. The Nikon may be slightly better in this area. My biggest gripe is the ease of use and its clunkiness. Good picture quality can't make up for all its cons [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    PinguiculaMan, raising Monarchs must be an interesting and beneficial hobby. I almost guessed that it was a Monarch larva but I thought their preferred food was milkweed and there is some resemblence to the Tiger Swallotail larva.
    My Dad grows Anise in his garden every year for the purpose of attracting swallowtails and their offspring.

    Joseph, monarchs spend the winter here in my town by the thousands. They are just starting to leave now. Next year you can come stay with us for a few days if you want.

    I've pretty much decided on a Canon A40, and if anyone has had experience, negative or otherwise, please let me know, and thanks to all for the advice.
