Thanks for the suggestions. I figured most people would say DSLR's, and as far as budget, I guess around $500 or a little more would be fine. With a DSLR, do you need to learn a lot,

Yes...

...or can you just start taking pictures in auto mode right away?

Yes...

The issue is that as you move from a P&S camera to a more serious photographic tool, the manufacturers understand that their customers are more likely to do serious PP and they set the defaults accordingly. You thus have to either start doing serious PP or change the camera defaults to render a better JPEG out of the camera. Figuring out how to do that can take some effort and time (but it's worth it).

With any of these cameras mentioned (including the G11), how quick can you take a picture from the camera being off and capped?

Most dSLRs are almost instantaneous.

And for my zoo example, although its daylight, if you are in a wooded area and there is an animal out of the flashes range, will these cameras get the shot in that low light?

Yes...

Or you could get a more powerful flash?
