Ibought my D50 a couple of weeks ago,mated to a Sigma 18-200 zoom.This shot took a few tries to get right - some sharpness issues I still need to work out, but overall, I was quite pleased with the outcome, for a first attempt. More shots to take and skills to acquire. Will post more in future.

Hope you like the little fella. Regards, Dan

Hi Dan. Congats on the new cam. I'm sure you are going to love it. Also, bird photgraphy can be very challenging, but also very rewarding, too. Keep up the posts.

Bob

Dan,

That is a wonderful photo. The composition is very nice, and the background is great. Not to often you gete them on a tree large enough to provide such a background. Be proud of it. Sharpness issues will be resolved in time. This image is really nice.

I really like the composition of the shot. Sometimes I try so hard to get as tight a shot as possible, I probably would have totally missed a shot like yours. As long as you're enjoying yourself and learning, you'll do fine. Look forward to more. Woody
