Thanks for all the compliment.
I think I can brag about one thing. Not only do I have steady hand holding the camera, I have another steady hand holding the subject too.
Likely because of the sudden warm weather in winter, the birds are hungrier and friendier than usual. Normally they would have all gone this time of the year.
Let us treasure the blessing we have .
And you guys/gals have a Merry X'Mas and happy
New year.

And we all look forward to a very fruitful year of 2007 definitely with plenty of great pict to post .

Daniel

Great shot Daniel.

I agree with the comment about not being sure how you were able to manually focus as well as holding your subject!

Great shots. I'm guessing though, that you used zone focus and preset the lens and aperature.

Thanks. You can easily trace the steps I took. That was the only way to do it anyway. Somehow I was at the right place and time. That is it. These are the pict in series

He is pondering what to pick :






Jump one step and focus what to pick; no clue why he did that







Still pondering




Got one








Ready to take off now-all within 5 seconds according to Exif
