LOL! I agree - if photography were easy the pros would go broke. If birding were easy it wouldn't be as satisfying when it does work (haven't had that experience yet). And the birds seem to disappear when I put on the long lens, but reappear when I put on a wide angle or a macro.

There could be an idea in that Mtngal, macro lens on the old K1000 and DS with the long lens down a trouser leg, you have me thinking.:roll:

There is a big plus if I can afford the K10D (on top of my dL & K100D). It has front and back remote sensor which is of great help for birding shots.
I have the sensor which can trigger the shutter 80 ft away on axis but around 15' off axis by 80 degree.
A rear remote sensor will open up a lot of birding opportunity. Well got to be spring unfortunately:sad: (or fortunately for my finance)

Reading all the above post is the primary reasons I stick with shooting wildflowers. Unfortunately, this time of year is the blahs, until next Spring. Of course in the Spring is when the wind blows. Ever try to shoot along stemmed flower in the wind?

I'm like the rest of you, the one really good shot I had of a great horned owl, I had my 28mm on. So I got a nice wide angle shot of a great horn owl, go figure. He's right there in the center, that little grayish-brown thing. Yeah, there he is, let me get the magnifying glass out- Bruce
