The second shot was at 120mm, Shutter priority 1/1250 5.6. I was probably 20-30 feet away. I am very happy with the camera so far. I'm learning a little more about it every day. My pictures get a little better every time I go shooting. The key is to get a big memory card and shoot a lot (at least for me) The D70 is very quick (coming from a point and shoot digital) so you can grab lots of good shots without having perfect timing.

I like the #1, a bit soft.

#2 is what I get all the time.

I seem to get softness near the head of the herons almost everytime I shoot them. I haven't figured out why yet. That one did come out better than most. I still have a lot to learn, but they do get better every time I go out, so I guess I'm on my way.

Oh my, what a wonderful couple of shots. I really like number 1 also as most of my bird shots are of tail feathers with the bird zooming in the opposite direction. Good shots, well captured.
