Tullio,

I know just what you mean. They make great subjects I just wish they wore nametags. LOL

Peasant,

Thanks for the identification, I did not have a clue. This little guy/gal liked to visit my window sill every morning for a couple of weeks.

But I have a FZ-18 photo to post: It is not my FZ-18 photo, but one that I have really admired a lot and I think that you will really enjoy.

Peasant.

I have too ask since I just noticed it...why does it seem that the Kestrel is sitting on a dead bird. I can se the legs and feathers sticking out beneath.

Here is an interesting comparison. The first photo was taken with the FZ-18 to as closely as possible duplicate a TZ-5 photo that I had taken about90 minutesearlier.

I took the shot shortly after the bird had acquired his breakfast.

Sarah, about the FZ18/TZ5 comparison, I happen to like the TZ5 shot a lot better.I think the sun was a bit too close to the frame on the FZ18 shot, over exposing the sky a bit. I was never too impressed with the TZn cameras but it looks like the TZ5 has improved significantly over the very first TZ1.

Steve, although nice, the bird shot seems to be on the soft side (or perhaps my monitor is playing tricks on me). I noticed that my FZ18 behaved similarly at long FL when the object/subject was far away. I wonder if this is a focus issue when the two conditionsare true (long zoom + long subject-to-camera distance).
