Went to my usual bird hide at churchville nature center and wonder where all the little birds went.

I soon found out when this hawk flew in and landed on one of the bird feeders.

FZ-FUN...Ya mean like this?:blah:

Very nice! That came out great! The overcast skies helped a lot. Maybe I'll see if he is around tomorrow. I was right around the corner from there today, but skipped it because it looked like it was going to rain any second (but never did..). I ended up going to New York City camera and getting a backdrop stand, some blue backdrop, and a ring flash. I was a little worried by how flimsy it looked in the store, but when I got home, I realized they weren't really putting it together right. Now its pretty sturdy.

Thanks FZFUN. I think they have an owl walk comming up. I would like to get a good night shot of an owl. They say there is a screech owl and a great horned owl.

I'll get the info and let you know.

Nice shot jazzmaster221. Birds are good practice in getting good shots. Especailly those little fast suckers.

Could you tell me about your experience with your ring flash? Does it work on the FZ-20, and what kind is it. I have done a lot of insect close-ups in the past with a Nikon SLR using a macro lens, but now I have the FZ-20.
