I got so excited when I saw him I was shooting with the lens cap on!!! Forgot a lot of what I have learned, like the iso was way high, but the 30d handled my inexperience as best as it could. donna

"With the lens cap on"....that's the pic in the first message, right?:-)

Great shots....this guy looks a little angry.

Yes, I agree Donna...your pic. are getting much better! #1 has good detail and exposure. On #2 when the bird is well lit and the background is darker you can dial in a negative exposure value of about 2/3 stop to maintain the detail in the highlights. Congratulations on these shots.

Thanks Kita and Rondv, I knew I blew the second one. I was trying to think so fast...I was driving the car when I saw him and had to turn around and go back and pray he would still be there. I would have gotten more but some guy in a truck thought I was having problelms and stopped to help...donna

By looks of number one you caught him while he was preening. Either that or he was coughing up a featherball. :lol: Nice work. Isn't learning fun, fun, fun.
