Hello,

Birds remain my favorite subjects to photograph. I especially enjoy portrait style images taken with my collection of point-and-shoot cameras. I wanted to share my favorite images of the beautiful birds I've had the privilege to photograph over the years.

Birds are truly living works of art.

Best regards,

Tony

Great photos! I didn't know the non-DSLR cameras could do that so well.

Thanks very much, Wayne. I hope everyone takes the time to view your gallery photos. Excellent compositions with fantastic color & clarity. Your Common Loon photos are especially wonderful.

Great shots!

My son has a SX50HS as well. it is an excellent camera and is capable of superb photos as long as there is sufficient light, and the subject isn't moving too fast.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Thank you, Sam. I agree that the SX50 has wonderful potential and in fact, I'm enjoying my second SX50 as my first failed after many years of excellent service. The SX50 remains my very favorite point-and-shoot camera. In my original post I'd forgotten that this is a Canon forum and posted an image of a Ring-billed Gull, which was taken with a Nikon bridge camera. All the rest will be photos taken with my SX40 & SX50.

I enjoyed viewing your excellent gallery of images. Best of luck to you and your son in your photography!

Thank you for the kind words, Tony! However, you are mistaken. This used to be a Canon forum. Now, it is for all camera brands. Please feel free to share all your bird photographs, regardless of what equipment was used to take the shot!
