I love these little guys. How friendly are they? Great captures. I like the last one the best because you lifted him off the ground. Works nicely!

The last one has good light, I would open up the crop in the direction it is looking (rule of thirds) as opposed to centering the subject. I also llike the last pic the best.

I wish I'd keptthe 7Hi when I bought the Minolta 5D. The lens was excellent.

The nuts are just standard tasty wideangle nuts. Wideangle depending on how far and how many you throw! :?

Does the battery last long for an afternoon's casual shooting? Before I used the A2, I used the 7Hi. The 7Hi battery was a big problem to me then.

You are right, the batteries on the 7Hi were a problem, I always had to keep a couple of spare setswith me. The Minolta 5D with the Li-on battery is just great, I have no problem filling a 512Mb card on one battery.I bought a spare battery and hardly ever use it. They also hold the charge for a very long time not like the usual rechargeables.
