Speaking of neighbors...

Buzz and I, and a couple of others from another local website will be heading down to Red Wing this coming Saturday.

Thanks gang, your too kind! :-) I have the D50 and was using the 80-400mm VR AF lens (it's not as slow as some people make it out to be IMO ~ unless you use a teleconverter) In direct sun I was going down to -0.7 EV so I wouldn't blow out the whites, but I think I can get by at -0.3 EV and I almost always set the camera to Aperture Priority.... I'll check out the rest of the exif info and post it later as I need to get the kids up and get to work now. I have taken so many and with continue to post them... however I ask that you guys also critique my pictures in a constructive manner so I can continue to get better... don't get me wrong, I like compliments...but feel free to tell me what I can do to improve as I'm relatively new at all of this.

Thanks! :|

Here are some recent geese pictures.
