Love all the bird shots. I can never seem to get them either close enough or still enough.

Dan I was just curious as to why you have the :o emoticon by your Canon 75-300 f/4-5.6
on your gear list? Is that a bad lens? Just wondering. Thanks. If you said before, and I missed it sorry....just kinda noticed it.

Terrific shot! This one works best for me of this "momma bird" series, as in a couple of the others the strain of magnification/sharpeni​ng or something is starting to show, and there is some smearing and artifacting. This looks really sharp and clean on my monitor...

QUOTED IMAGE

I drove my scooter way up in the mountains and then didn't find much to shoot. Came all the way home and realized I'd left a bag with two lenses in it at an outdoor snack place and had to go all the way back. One nice thing about living in Asia, I didn't have to worry too much that anyone would take it:)

John: some people like it most don't (including me) not the sharpest not the fastest but I needed a long lens in a pinch and it was less than $200 at Target. When I first bought it I liked it but, I really didn't know any better. Some will say it is the worst lens Canon makes. If I can dig up some pics with it I will post them.

There are better lenses, for sure, but stopped down and in good light, it can still do a good job. I've been putting a fortune into good glass over the last year, but am still regularly awed by a terrific photo, and then, after checking the exif info and finding it's one of the cheapest "crummy" lenses, have to wonder if it's really worth it...

Don't I know it! I'm incredibly absent minded, and if I were back in the states I think I would have a lot less "stuff" than I do now, just from forgetting it here and there...

Lots of great photos today. Wish I could keep up.

Here's one I did specifically to test my new computer. An HDR panorama, which was something like 18 exposures. This computer rocks, and it processed everything much faster than expected!

Quite true while I have taken some good pics with it I think in general it doesn't take the greatest. I agree that cheap doesn't always have to mean crummy take the nifty fifty I think it takes extraordinary pictures yet is mostly cheap plastic and around $100....Go Figure.
