I just got back from the Refuge and a full day of playing with my new FZ20 and thought I would share some of the pictures. I think this is an amazing camera with all of its range of features. Most of the shots were taken at full zoom. Some at 12X and others at 48X. Panasonic's image stabalization rocks. Please, let me know what you think.

Juvenile Peregrine Falcon.
Ooops! A good friend who is also a falconer just informed me that this is in fact a juvenile Red Tail Hawk. Nuts! I will just have to keep going back until I find that Peregrine. I know it's out there somewhere. :-)

Ross Geese I think, or Snows It's hard to tell the difference.

Thanks bobc,

The camera really helps photo morons like me look good. I shot almost 200 photos today. The first 50 I took, I had the camera set to macro mode, "idiot!
And they still came out great. The flying Sandhill Crane was one of the pics I took in macro mode. Amazing.

The refuge is about 60-70 miles north of Sacramento on I-5. Just below the town of Willows. It is an awesome place. One of the largest in the nation I believe, and since it is right smack in the middle of the Pacific flyway it gets around 2 million birds a season. Plus River otters (saw one today... well the hind end of one as he slipped back in the water) Bald Eagles, Coyotes, Pelicans, Swans etc, etc.. Best time is from Nov - Feb. Till your friend to bring an extra memory card and battery. They will surely need them.

Good shooting,
smac

What a great picture.

That is exactly how I feel Friday's after teaching Junior High Science all week.

Those little hormones with feet really keep me going. :?

I hope you do get a chance to go to the Refuge. It is really a neat place.

All the best, smac
