Excellent shots, the middle one especially, but the poses and background are greet on all of them. The first and last appear slightly overexposed on the lsft, especially the tree trunk area and the breast area of the last photo. Otherwise, a really fine presentation IMO. The woodpecker exposure is real nice.

Good stuff RDV. That FZ20 is a good machine, and in good hands produces : good stuff!! [I think it is smac who has posted quite a few good pics of birds taken with the FZ20]

RDV, Great shots. Don't you love that FZ20? That first woodpecker is an excellent capture. In fact they are all really well done.
Try taking a couple to get printed at a photo processing store. You will be even more impressed. I have recently been taking my shots to Costco and printing them at 8x10. The results are amazing. Their $200,000 photo processor run circles around my $149 home printer.
Anyway, very nice pictures indeed.

JakeTPegg, thank you for your nice words. I appreciated the compliment.

All the best and keep shooting,
smac

Great shots. The FZ is capable for sure. Just need the technique and patience. Lots of light helps too, I've found. Keep on shootin'...........thekman.

Thanks for the comments!!

Normcar....Your critique is a real help. It makes me consider options for future shots. I don't have an experienced eyebeing a novice.

smac...I've been looking at your shots on the pana forum before I found this one. I think your shots are a bench mark for anyone learning to use the FZ20.

These are my best shots to date and I thank you all again for your kind words.

It looks like you have something on that Pine cone to help bring them in. It seems to work pretty good, what is it?

Once they taste it they keep coming back.

Dried tropical fruit, almonds, honey, and just a touch of olive oil chopped in a food processor.
