gj - is that the same TCON17 you used with your Olympus SP 570 UZ? And from memory I believe you also used the Raynox DCR 250 macro lens with that camera, didn't you? ... Yes, thinking ahead to the day when I become proficient with my Olympus SP 590 UZ and want to move up a notch (or three) ...

Indeed it is, Bernice. I've had it since I owned the SP550. The DCR250 is a very recent acquisition, though. Viewing a lot of your images, I'd say you're more than ready for it. When you do start shopping for the TCON17, bear in mind that the B300 is identical and can sometimes be found a little cheaper.

They are all of the same bird, T. I'm guessing at a Cooper's hawk.

I think it is the other way around - the first is the juvenile Red Shouldered and the second the Cooper's.

Sometimes you do get lucky with these guys:
