I think they are very good. The first is a very difficult shot, and you did good.

The 2nd is a little overexposed.

I find the my FZ cameras tend to overexpose so I set the exposure compensation to -2/3. But that is what works for me and might not be the best for you.

The pictures are very good. The first picture is a little out of focus, so what you could have done, and you can do the next time is use the manual focus, and try to focus on the squirrel's face. Just keep taking pictures!

What mode and settings are you using?

Are you using the full optical zoom?

What IS mode?

If you are zooming all the way in... It takes a little practice to get the focus down...

Observe the subject when the camera focuses. It may not focus on the subject all the time, and you may have to refocus several times to get it to focus on the subject. If you use a wider aperture setting, it will make your depth of field shallower. If you use a smaller aperture setting, your depth of field will be deeper and you may have been able to get the first one sharper because I think the focus was more on the branchesand notthe squirl.

I am pretty new to all this stuff myself, and some one please correct me if I am being missinformative.

You definately picked a good subject to practice with... Small birds are even better as they move very fast, and once you can get a clear sharp shot of them little suckers, you will have definately mastered the focus.

Hope this helps...
