This is why i got a DSLR... i could never get shots like this with my FZ20! series shot at dusk, using 80-400 lens @ 400mm, 1/500 @ f5.6.

Hey Rocky!

Superb photos, congrats with the success of using your new toys (camera AND lens!) so well. I love the "wing beat" feel of this series, well done!

PS Did you manage to find out / remove that possible dust on the sensor? Or did you clone it out of these photos... (or maybe not visible in such photos as these).

Anyway, thanks again for sharing, and I agree, a DSLR allows us photos we couldn't without a DSLR, but the most important is still the person BEHIND the lens! Congratulations again.

Great shots! I like the lighting and the unusual pose of the Heron with neck extended in flight.

hi Paul,

yes, i got rid of the dust speck. i can see i'm going to have to invest in a cleaning kit, though! think i'll try the Copperhill system first, and see if it works well; the Visible Dust kit isalmost $300 - ten times more expensive! :sad:

I use Lens Pens to clean my Canon 20D sensor and would highly recommend it. I purchased mine through ARthur Morris' website . I believe I paid $12.00 (not positive) and I got both the thinner lens pens and the wider lens pens as a kit.
