Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Don't get an SLR unless you really want to learn to fly a spaceship. People went to moon with less complicated devices.

My personal preferences in this stuff runs towards the Ricohs - Sam's pictures above were taken with a €299 R7 - and they specialize in  close up stuff - they'll focus down to a few cm on front of the lens. My sister-in-law bought the R8 when she started asking the same question as you and she's happy with it. These are tiny pocket cameras.    

I'd say a G10 would be too much as well, and I hate the interface on that class of Canons. Anyway, they're too goddamn big.
