Hello All,

Today we saw this robin on her nest in a protective posture.

She never took her eye off of me even though I was a distance away from the tree. I shot my H9 using my 15x zoom at 8mp and 23x Smart Zoom at 3 mp. HANDHELD.

4 images follow:

1) Scene setter, the nest is in the red circle.

Images 2, 3, & 4, All PP with Auto Levels, Focus Magic, UnsharpMask, Save for Web Medium Quality to enable posting here at Steves. All in Photoshop Elements 4.

It was a special moment to catch on the spur of the moment, made possible by my H9.

Regards,

Nicholas

Hi Nick,

wow! Lovely pics.

I assume that 'spur of the moment ' means handheld? Remarkable if this is the case.

Twitchers everywhere will love this camera.

Hi Steve,

Glad you like the pics, Yes, HANDHELD.

This is day 19 of owning and shooting my H9 ( I don't count them, but I have been downloading into folders with the day as part of the title).

I have not taken my tripod out with me since about day 10. It is amazing.

With my other cameras I always had my camera and my tripod with me or in the car.

Nicholas

Very nice pictures! If you add the TC you can get better than my 97 times zoom with my H5 + TC with smart zoom and VGA resolution! The bird was a white dot around 100 - 150 metres away and its a lousy handheld picture but I really wanted a picture ofthis avocet.

Just for the record, Nick, that blackbird that you painted with a brown front is not a robin. The picture below is a REAL robin that we Brits have on our Xmas cards!

Please don't take this seriously anyone!
