Number four may look like a "buzzard" (=vulture), but it is one cold looking turkey. It jusst lacks the "cuteness" factor of the Chickadees that have been posted lately.

The irridescent/metallic texture of the feathers is very close to reality, but would shine more in better light - Since a flash won't reach that far,maybe think you could use one of those "night sun" spotlights that the police helicopters have! :G

Looks like you are going to have great results with the new outfit,once you master alltheintricacies!:-D

A big congratulations to you. Now I have even more reason to look forward to your posts. You are going to have a ball I'm sure and you are off to a great start.
For my first try and bad conditions I am OK with the photos. After I get this thing figured out I hope to have some keepers to post.

Those shots of the buzzard look like my second wife. I woke up one day after drinking the night before and there she was. I thought (wished) I was dead. Took me 3 years to fix the situation. Thanks for the reminder.
By the way, I have a wild rabbit which looks a lot like your shot sitting beside me as it usually does. Its name is Stewie Gilligan Mitchell. My kids idea.
1st tell Stewie Gilligan I said Hi. Your 2nd wife sounds like a real photo opportunity you lost.

After one time out with it I am thinking there is just to much to learn but I am stuborn and will get some keepers. I am anxious to try this set up in good light.
