Default Flower pics, and a baby bird

Hi Everyone, I got a new camera and I have been taking pics of everything. My husband and I went to my parents house, my mom loves to garden and her flowers were simply beautiful, so I snapped a bunch of them. I was talking to my dad when my name is being yelled with urgency. Everyone is standing around this baby bird, but no one would touch it. I love wild life, and have handfed a baby blue jay for a couple of days. I was told by the wildlife officers I could have put it in a tree banch or bush, the parents supposedly would keep feeding, even if touched by humans. Well I cleaned off a branch and took a pic. Well the little bugger was excited, and was calling for mom, and fell off the branch. We were all very worried. My mom has a little birdhouse sitting on top of her clothesline, very high up. We watched the mom flying back and forth, so if we could just find the baby we could get it back into the nest.

Again, about a 1/2 hr later, I hear my name being yelled with urgency. he baby was out on the side of the road. The neighborhood kid found it. So his mom made him go and get the ladder. I am afraid of heights, but up the ladder I went. I had to turn the baby sideways to get him into the nest, he hopped right on in. The baby was safe. I called mom the next day, she said the parents were feeding the baby, that all was well. Here are the pics I took.

Very Nice Pictures and Story.
What Brand of Camera did You use?
I just Bought a Nikon, So I'm trying to Figure it Out with the Computer.
Posting Pics Makes the Forums So Much More Interesting and Helpful.
I Hope it's Not to Hard to Learn or Figure Out...

Thanx booker. I hate my pics. I don't look good on the other end of the camera, maybe someday when the right pic is taken.

Just read your manual. I had my camera figured out in no time. Like a MD, practice makes perfect. Good luck, snap everything!

Thanks for the Advice HF.
Can I ask a Few More?

Are You Using a Tripod Stand?
Are You Using Any of the Computer Enhancement Features?

Some of these Pics that get Posted are just Beautiful.
Professional Grade.

wishooter, I haven't gotten a tripod as of yet, and no computer enhancement features. My camera has 28 shooting modes for scenes, and I play with them to make the best pic I can. I also have 2 different macro modes, and digital picture stabilization. I have regular macro and super macro. The software that comes with it is awesome, but I haven't played around with the programs yet. I have been getting used to the macro mode, which I love. This camera has 4 different image quality shooting modes, which for the flowers and the baby bird, I used the highest quality, which doesn't give you many pics to shoot, I need to get the memory card for the camera still. I will be getting a tripod as I can delay the pic also. Don't be afraid to experiment with the camera. Have fun with it.

My mom is always planting new flowers, I like to take the pics of them. Take some pics when they flower.
