Macros with a point and shoot

I've ben using this new Canon S95 a lot over the last few days and it is fantastic. It's a little more complex than a standard point-and-shoot, but it's got an "auto" function so it's easy for newbies. The really cool part is that you can control the aperture and the shutterspeed with two very ergonomical (and programmable) dials - and you get to see the results of your tweaking in real time on the rear monitor. Talk about a quick and dirty education in photo basics. This was manually focused at about 2 inches in front of the lens.

Canon S95 ISO 80, at 1/100 sec F2 (very cold White Balance).
