TCav, the exif data for the second photo is;
f/3.7
1/50second
ISO 125
0 EXPOSURE BIAS
25MM FOCUL LENGTH
METER MODE PATTERN

I used a macro lense. Does that help/tell you anything?

Not really, but thanks. I was hoping to find out if the 70-300 would be long enough for you. If those are the kinds of photos you plant to take, then I don't think that will be a problem.

I only took those photos as they were in my garden so handy to take at the time. I plan on taking more than those when the weather permits.

I've had a look at your artwork on your website. If you would use a camera to create photos from which you'd create images like you have on your website, I think that you'd probably be fine with the bundle that Jessops has on the Sony A35. The A35 is the lowest priced dSLR that uses an excellent 16MP sensor that's used in many more expensive cameras from Sony, Nikon and Pentax. The 18-55 is a good general purpose lens, and the 55-200 is a nice telephoto zoom lens that's also capable of 1:3.5 macro. It's a very nice kit and it's within your budget.

eyesha... the GH2 would be perfect for anyone interested in shooting birds and nature. Smaller and lighter than a DSLR but with the same form factor. Plus, Panasonic makes a 100-300mm lens for it that will work - for your purposes - like a 200-600mm zoom.

I agree with Tcav, that A35 bundle looks good.

Not the best for bird in flight though. If eyesha whats to shoot them in flight, a dslr option is the better option then the gh2. But then you will need a longer lens then a 300mm.

A dslr with a sigma 150-500 would be a good option for birds in flight.
