Default Buddha, Bird - FZ150

Haven't used the FZ150 all that much lately as I have been playing with an Olympus E-PL1 micro four thirds camera. But, longest lens I have for that is 175mm, so not the same as the Panny. When Black Friday comes (Super-sale shopping day to non-USA readers) I am debating whether to get a 300mm lens for that camera or an FZ200. Assuming they both are on sale.

Anyway, took the Panasonic to the beach this morning. No birds of note, so I shot the Buddha in the dunes. Used Fill Flash turned way down low. Then I went home and shot the sparrow out the window of the garage. Bird is in the sun. The evergreens well behind him are in the shade. He is one of many that come to our feeders all day long. Except when the hawks or neighbor's cats are in the yard.

Hard to ignore that f/2.8 lens on the FZ200 isn't it...!!

That's an interesting statue. Is there a story behind it, or just art?
