These little guys will stick around all winter, look especially nice on a snow covered branch. I love cardinals too, but they are more skittish...and yes I was hanging out the window. I can't afford a long lens for my dslr so this panny gets the job done for me. Thanks everyone, your comments are valued. Donna

Donna, If you are interested in a very affordable long lens look at the Sigma 70-300D APO DG Macro lens. It may not be quite as sharp as the $800+ lenses but at $200 it's a bargain. The macro Works pretty well also. I will someday be getting a 400 to 500mm lens but for now this one does the job.

I take tons of shots, sometimes using the burst mode, lots of them are out of focus...it can be frustrating...thanks everybody for the kind remarks. donna

Imagine how frustrating (and costly) it would be if you were using a film camera! :|
