took my FZ20 and TCON-14B to the local wetland park, and caught this cormorant drying on a snag...



and for some reason, these little female redwings just love posing for me! :G

Really nice shots. I like both of them a lot. I am assuming the second one is a honey-eater?

#2 was shot from about 20 feet away, so the bird was close enough that the detail was easy to capture. i shot these from a monopod, f4.0 @ 1/250, ISO 100 at 12x zoom with the TCON-14B. for this one i usedspot focus; the background is pretty crowded, and a multi-zone focus usually locks onto the background instead of he subject. i don't use manual focus much... my eyes aren't as good as they used to be, and the camera usually does a better job than i can, especiallywith the relatively poor resolution of the EVF.

how do i like the FZ20? i love it! it does have some limitations, but for what it is, it does a superb job. on a scale of 1-10, i'd give it an 8. only the noise and lack of a couple of key features keep it from being a 10. i will be getting my 30D in about a month, but i have no doubt the FZ20 will remain a regular part of my kit, and will continue producing good photos.
