Pleasetell her that there's a few middle aged ladies around here that are always learning, it's a fun place to do that.

She said why, I'm just an old lady with a camera, I don't know anything...
That proves a couple of things:

1: a little knowledge is a dangerous thing - look what she's done with it! Better than some others that have been posted (elsewhere, of course . . . . ) aranoid:

2: the camera knows what it is doing, and can know better than some other photographers who think they can outthink it!

3. knowing what to take - and when - without coaching shows natural talent - it would be a shame not to exploit it.

Although big birds are easier than small ones, the BIFs are outstanding - doubly so for a first (?) try - the lens handles easily and is ideal for these.

Keep after her!

I'll tell her that Harriet, she'll be pleased to know you think of her as middle aged. I tease her about being a senior citizen because I'm 2 years younger!

Given your history with the Samsungs - and now this - I have to wonder how you pack your camera when (and if ?) you carry it around on your motorcycle - vibration is heck on delicate mechanisms.

well Pen, I pack the camera gear in a well padded hard case and it goes in the trunk. plus the Goldwing is a lot different than a Harley or a sport bike. they weigh in at approximately a 1000lbs are shaft driven and are smother riding than most cars. :-) so I don't think thats the problem.:-?

sorry GW, but I'm already feeling sorry for you, don't think she's going to part with that lens.

Great series, and those BIF's are outstanding
