Nice shots of the sparrows, Houston, and great shot of the Cardinal. Looks like you were almost on top of that one, and you got a real clear and sharp photograph with excellent color saturation.

I agree, the shot of the cardinal is wonderful. Good rich color and still got
detail. Also, amazing you got such a good shot at that shutter speed!

You seem to get more chipping sparrows that I do up here. I've only seen them a few times.

That is a really good cardinal. Wonderful exposure and a good pose. You got the RED-ness just right.

Thanks fellows, I really appreciate your comments.

Norm I wasn't on top of him but I was pretty much underneath him. LOL.

Eric I went to the local camera store today but they didn't have the BG468RC2 so I'm ordering it from Adorama tonight.

The most amazing thing happened today. A goldfinch lit on my lensand just sit there looking at me. I wonder what possessed him to do that!!!!
