Lol. Thanks. It wasnt pleased. I was standing on a chair & was hesitant at first on how close I could get. Got the nerve to get camera as close as I could. Was able to get lens just inches away from its face. Was just fortunate that it wound up opening it's mouth and hissed at me. The LX5 has such a nice lens and all the manual controls , That I find it sometimes difficult to categorize it as your typical PS camera. It's definitely in a league of its own.
