This Mountain Bluebird pair was nesting in a cavity of a Pinon Pine tree among a field of sagebrush. They were curious about my presence and gave me some easy shots with a Panasonic FZ10 hand held at 12x zoom from about 20 feet. Both photos are uncropped but I used Photoshop Elements auto contrast to reduce some apparent "haze" in the image on my screen. Any suggestions for enhancing the images would be appreciated. Sorry, no website yet so I'm posting both shots separately. Thanks,

Hummer

Hummer, that is a great shot of this bird. I'm just wondering what your aperture is set at as the background is "almost" in focus. Had your aperture been more open you might be able to distinguish the bird as the center of interest more by blurring the background more. Excellent shot of the bird! Wow, you have really been at work with your FZ10. I'm eager to get mine back so that I can get on with it as well. Mine's sent away on warranty repair on the MF button. I envy that you can use yours and I can't use mine.
