Default Not too shabby...

I was coming out of prison a couple of weeks ago and spotted a kingfisher. I had my Fuji F750EXR with me so I thought I'd snap a few. This would have been my first images of a kingfisher and I was pretty excited. It was not to be. The Fuji is what I call a "zombie" camera because it has no EVF and those type cameras make people look like zombies with their arms extended in front of them busily framing pictures. My hands are just not that steady! The kingfisher shots were crap. Passable as snapshots... barely. I thought to myself "If I had one of the DSLRs or my old HS20, I would have had some really decent shots." I don't like leaving my DSLRs in the car, so I picked up a used HS25EXR from B&H (MUCH cheaper than anything on eBay or Amazon!) It took a while to remember my settings from my old HS20EXR, but I finally got 'em. Take a look at this one from the HS25EXR. VERY little PP done on this.

Very nice... colourful little fella...
I'm assuming you leave the "25" in your car 24/7...? Good idea...

Thanks. That's specifically what I bought it for, Simon. I got it dirt-cheap from B&H so if it does get stolen, it won't be like having one of my DSLRs stolen.
