The Siberian Jay adds some color! It's interested in people and comes really close. This is shot without the TCON17 that I usually use for bird pictures. Even so, it's a full height 8MP image, cropped only by the sides. It looks cute but their meals can include smaller birds...

Here's another Siberian Jay, shot down in the valley. Looks like it was 'barking at the moon' ;-)

Fantastic shots, especially 1 and 2. I'd add a little contrast to #3.

Gotta agree with rainer lovely shots indeed. My FZ10 would have gopt seriously confused with all that snow and the 30 handled it spot on.

Cheers

Macnite, Evie, Rainer, Harj and Hiroshi,
Thanks a lot for nice comments!!

Harj, I think the FZ30 has a bit of a problem with a lot of snow and auto whitebalance, images easily become blueish so it wasn'tthat right on thespot.Settingwbto Cloudy made an improvement.

Very nice shots PeHa ! You mentioned a problem with the FZ30 and white balance taking pictures of snow. Just wondered if you have ever tried using the "snow" mode in the scene modes? Check page 78 of your manual. Jim
