These are all very nice. I especially like the nuthatch shots. You have a much nice assortment of small birds then do I.

Lovely shots Ron. Great detail. I read the odd thread about the d200 being soft out of the camera? Is this a fact or just fiction? Personally, I like a camera that puts the control of settings such as sharpness in the users hands, and not the camera's programming. Again...very nice photos.....cheers........Don

rondv,

Great captures. In Scandinavia we have the first

troglydytes troglodytes

(which means living in cavities)

They run around like little mouses. The males can make up to 8 nests as "facilities" to attract the females. Competition (not "intelligent design")

Again: greats captures

(229 species in Scandinavia)

Thanks for the comments guys!

Don...at full resolution straight from the camera I find the photos plenty sharp from the D200. WhenI finish my adjustments and re-size I add a small amount of USM and I'm very happy with the camera. I just sold my Nikon 300mm f4 lens and am now using a Nikon 200mm 400mm f4 VR lens. I don't think it's any sharper than the 300 but I like the zoom and the VR.

Ron

Thanks Kent and Bob!!

wk7leung...I have a small lake beside my house and the dam is next to the forest. I've had feeders set up there for 3 years and they have grown accustom to me being there.
