I really enjoy the Mountain Bluebirds. I have 8 bluebird houses put up around here. They are most difficult to get photos of, because they sure don't stay in one place, but for a second! The blue is so vivid; very striking!

I'm hoping to get some photos of them to post here, soon!

Carol, I like your shoots, your mountain landscape and more your spirit's profundity

Good shots of the plane Carol

That's a fair piece of land to be looking after.....

Nice to have the space and lack of light pollution to be able to have that telescope setup, is it a computer controlled one?

Default I'll be eagerly awaiting the Bluebird pics!

I think it's terrific that you've set up housing for them.

I have both the FZ40 and the FZ100 (for greater speed--and similar enough to the FZ40 so I don't get overwhelmed in trying to learn 2 cameras at once) and I can't believe how difficult it is to get photos of birds in flight.

Square One, I can relate to your appreciation of lack of light pollution and wide open spaces, since my area has neither going for it

Thank you; living among the beauty is very inspiring to try to capture it with a camera.

It is very nice to have no light pollution (only 1 neighbor year around). No, the telescope is a 16" Dobsonian, no computer control. I enjoy finding things in the night sky manually.

It was quite thrilling to have that plane come right over the house! I'm still amazed at the quality of photos from the FZ40, with little work from the operator!

I'll have to look into the FZ100 to accompany my FZ40 also! I'm like you; I don't want to learn two totally different cameras; that's when I'd miss some great shots.

Because of my extremely dark skies, the MilkyWay stretches completely across the sky; absolutely beautiful. I'm going to try to get some night shots this Summer.

Carol, wait a couple of months and see what Panasonic announce as the 'new' camera / cameras for next year

I think it might be interesting to see if they update the FZ100

That's great advice! I know I'll not turn loose of the FZ40; it's so easy to get great images with it!

Yes Indeed Carol, it's a very good Camera, my brother in virginia is going to get me one with him when he'll come to visit us. These days I'm taking pictures with Panasonic ZS3 " TZ7" it's a good Camera, I'll download the pictures soon.
