Hi Peter,

Beautifulshot of this bird!

That P5100 is a greatchoice for that expensive scope. A 12 Megapixel sensor with VR, 3200 ISO and full manual exposure capabilities...wow!

Some CC: For exposure are you using spot metering or area metering? I'd suggest spot metering centered on the white areas as they look a littleoverexposed on theseimages... either that or use the Histogram feature to check for over exposure inyour images and adjust the exposure compensation.

Can't agree with you more on exposure control. For this one, I used the auto mode and reduced the exposure by -0.7 stop.
