Thanks for the response! Looks like my wife wants to keep the G1 and get a G2 so we can both shoot longer lenses when we go out! I love the fact she is starting to like photography too!

I appreciate the offer of selling her your G2, but I have a credit at our camera store here :-)

It must be nice to be married to someone who shares your addiction!

Yesterday, I was cleaning up some emails on my computer when I looked out the window and saw what appeared to be big snowflakes falling to the ground. I soon realized that what I was seeing were white feathers. I observed a Cooper's Hawk, working to pluck feathers from a dove he/she had killed, perched on a big, lower limb in my front yard oak tree. I got my camera and walked around to the neighbor’s driveway, to put the late afternoon sun behind me, where I had a great view, close enough that he/she nearly filled the viewfinder. These two are the best of a very large collection. The hawk stayed in our tree for about an hour and then flew away with what remained of the meal.

I like the power and action in this image but my wife says it should be labeled "not suitable for sensitive viewers":
