That male cardinal is a beautiful picture, definitely my favorite. You are getting good results with that lens.

Jim - Thanks! He spent a LOT of time sitting in the feeder - chasing off any other hungry bird (especially the female cardinal - he's not much of a gentleman!)

GW - Glad you enjoyed them. Not so sure about a book at this time, but maybe someday...

Lou - They do seem to have a bluish cast - that lens plays some funny tricks sometimes. Thanks for telling me! (Will post fixed versions for your approval in a moment...)

Harriet - Thanks so much. That is a fine lens - and KEH still has the M42 version for $616 (just what you need!!!)

Rodney - Thanks for your suggestions! Here's a quick snapshot of the feeder (not a very good photo, but does show what the feeder looks like):

Mole, better but still blue. I took a shot at trying to fix it, let me know what you think. I assumed it was a gray squirrel.

Lou - Thanks for the PP. This particular gray squirrel was a bit darker than your attempt, and had more of the brownish "highlights" that your revision seems to have lost. But yours does look less blue... I may play with this some more later, but it's not all that important a shot.

Another great series, mole. The little white throated sparrows are among my favorite birds that normally visit my yard in winter. They're among the few birds that will come right up to the patio door off our bedroom. They haven't yet arrived for the winter here, but I figure they'll probably be here soon.

Paul - our WT Sparrows have already been here for almost a month - I will tell them to head over your way!! They sure are cute, and probably my wife's favorite bird song.
