[align=left]Hi Jim,

Your picture was so perfect I felt the need to comment.
The image is clear from the tip of the beak to the tail feathers.
I love my new DMC-FZ30 but none of my pictures are this sharp.
May I ask a few questions?

Was image stabilization turned on (1 or 2)
Were you using a tripod?
Was digital zoom turned on?
How far away were you?
Do you shoot raw and then enhance the photo in some way?

If your gave me this bird stuffed and all day to shoot it I don't think I could have done a better job than you. This is the kind of image I dream about.

Thanks for the nice comments Rod ! Regarding your questions: IS was on Mode 2 - Camera was hand held - Digital Zoom Off (always!) - Approximately 20 to 25 ft away - The picture was taken in 'Fine' jpg mode - No image enhancements other than cropping. Jim

Thanks for the help Jim,

I'm going back to work today to find that perfect shot.
I bought a Canon 20D from Costco online thinking I could get
more detail. Now it may be going back!
