Thanks for the great bird pictures! Could you tell how far away you were, and the zoom and exposure information? I'd appreciate it, since I too like taking pictures of birds, but have not had any turn out as focussed and detailed as yours.

Hi. I was about eight to ten feetaway from from these birds. I was in a bird blind. All taken at full zoom, iso 80, F 2.8-3.7,shutter speeds around 1/30 to 1/60 (not as fast as I would like, but cloudy day), spot focus, center weighted metering, standard contrast and sharpness, low saturation.

All were cropped a bit, slight bit of noise reduction, and sharpened. Hope that helps.

Thanks! A bird blind...what a good idea. Could you post a pic of that sometime?!I have a couple more questions, by full zoom, do you mean optical AND digital? Did you use a tripod, or rest your camera on the blind?¬* Thanks¬* again for your help, and your inspiring pictures.

Thanks Hiroshi. Ashbelis, I don't use the digital zoom and I rest my arms on the bird blind, no tripod. I do have to delete some blurry ones sometimes.
