I was test-driving my new Canon SX40HS.
I just resize and watermarked.

First of all nice set. I am curious how far away are you taking these pictures. are you all the way to the 35x zoom on these. If so what is the detail like on the original these look pretty good here but are the sharp at 100%. Just curious. I was out trying to shoot a RWBB with my 170-500mm zoom on my Canon 50D and my shot is no where near as nice as this one. Part of that is due to early morning light but still that is a pretty nice shot you have there.

Thanks. I'm not very good with distances but if I had to guess, I was at least 30+ feet away. They are beyond the 35x range. I belief the Yellow-headed was in the 68x range. The RWBB was a bit closer.
I have a 40D w/ 100-400mm and believe me I know how you feel. I sure am not going to compare these photos with one what comes out of "real" glass but it sure is nice as a back-up unit.

It was bright when I took the shots but we had a downpour 40 minutes later. Here's a video I took testing the zoom of the camera.
