Will a flash help 10' away in daylight?
I'm new so any help would be great.

Welcome to the forum and good start with a nice humming bird.
A little more PP in Photoshop could help to lighten it but noticed there is a little noise and brightening will enhance the noise.
Your ISO must have been quite high because of the darker conditions, resulting in noise.
A little plugin for photoshop may be your answer to the second shot, such as Noise Ninja or Neat Image, google it and you will find either them to download.

As you have 'image editing OK' under your user name I have done a little sample where I used levels to brighten it, then a little contrast and then applied some neat image to reduce the noise. This is to show what a difference neat image or Noise Ninja can do.
At your request I will remove the image if you don't like it.

Tony,
Thanks for your help. My wife gave me the camera a month ago for my bday. Don't have a clue where to proceed. Do like outdoor things and would love to improve.
