Default Young woodpecker

This young woodpecker was kind enough to pose for me to take several handheld shots!

Very cute, Carol. I thought woodpeckers had at least a little longer beak - may be this one is too young?! Also, why don't you try with a tripod or resting the camera on a solid, stationary surface? I would like to see something as sharp as Alex's kingfisher image out of your camera, preferably at full zoom.

Thanks Raghu; right now I have a back injury that gives me tremendous pain, so carrying out my tripod, setting it up would be rather difficult.

I apologize that these are not as sharp as others, I can sharpen them in Elements, but thought I would post right out of the camera.

I'll wait till I get my tripod going, before posting more. Sorry.

No problem Raghu, I was very proud of this camera, but have let this forum down with the images, even though I thought these were preety good, but let's admit it; few have the talent of Alex.

I have a compressed fracture of the T7, that has collapsed completely, leaving me in excruciating pain 24/7. So I'm doing the best I can.

Dear Carol, I find these pictures very beautiful and spontaneous. Sorry to be taken as a yardstick, the photo of kingfisher that I have made available for download, was the result of a condition very lucky for me and difficult to repeat.
I am very sorry for your pain and hope you can find relief with the care and needed medications.
Do not worry too much about perfection in the images and keep the spirit of research and the fun in taking pictures!
Raghu certainly did not want to claim your perfection, he just wanted to encourage you to get more!
Take care of yourself.
Alex

Alex, you are my hero with photography. It is not the camera, rather your talent that shows in all your wonderful photographs!

Here they are run thru FastStone imaging to sharpen.

I'll leave you with these.
