This weekend we went to a place called Solomon's Castle. It's quite an experience! I'll post some more pix of the place later but, I wanted to post some of the bird shots I got. they aren't what I'd call great shots but they were the best I could do at such a distance. they also are the first I've gotten of these species.

GW, those are great shots. I'm glad you've recovered enough from yoiur recent accident to be able to press a shutter button.

Ha Ha,:-) I think that's one of the reasons I'm having so much trouble getting clear photos right now. You try using just your 3rd finger to press the shutter with the other two sticking strait out!:? :cart:

Hi GW,

Have you tried either a wired or IR remote? You might be able to tape/velcro it somewhere to either use it with your right thumb or another convenient functional finger of either hand.

. . . and remember not to pick it, or it won't heal. . .

. . . sorry, I couldn't help it! :evil:

The painted buntings are really beautiful. We have the indigo bunting around here in summer, but the painted never make it this far north.

Especially good job considering the difficulties you're facing.

Thank you mother Scott :grin:
I promise not to pick.

yeah, I tried the remote, it was more hassle than it was worth really. I didn't think of the Velcro though, that might have helped. :doh: anyway the fingers are healing much faster than I would have thought. I figure in a week I'll be back to shooting just like regular folks.:G

Hey Paul,
The buntings are really a treat, I didn't know we had them here in FL and I've been here 20 years! it's amazing how a camera can change your life.
