This Meadow Lark was about 10 feet off the road as I was travelling around the refuge auto tour. He didn't seem to care that I was backing up and pulling forward to get a better view. He just kept singing his little head off until I had finally had enough and drove on.

Amazing shots - the detail is really incredible!It's also cool to see they were shot in P mode on the FZ20 and not with manual settings - says a lot for the camera also -Once again, something for me to strive for :-).

Sharp and good contrast. The background helps to set off the bird nicely.
The grand finale is a hoot!! Don't know if he is hollering at you or trying
out for an opera!!

Thank you very much.
I have been pretty impressed with this camera and lens. I find that the more I can asked the camera to do the more I can concentrate on getting a good pose for the shot. With my old 35mm Canon SLR I reached, with tons of practice, a point where I was almost proficient at getting one good shot out of ten. The newer technology has really helped bring that ratio down.

Thanks again and I am glad you liked them.

Yes, those are very nice shots. The colors and pose are appealing. The background is a little distracting, but that is picking nits.

We don't get those out on this code (of course) so I've never seen one before. Good looking bird, I like these a lot.
