Where have you been all my life?

I'm loving my new camera. It has opened up a whole new world for me. Whilst the kids were playing in the backyard, a family of dragonflies descended on our garden.

Playing around with the speed shutter and telephoto lens, I managed to capture these images. 
 
 This camera makes any novice shot look great. Can't wait to take some photos of ordinary things down at the beach.

Oh, they are wonderful photos! What a magical device.

Tell me what sort of camera ... is it a digital SLR? Does it have changeable lenses? Price? I'm desperate for a new camera ... so many choices.
