Nice shots! I used to shoot birds for about a year or so, really got into it with what I could afford. Had some good pics here and there. Since having kids have had to narrow down my free time activities to metal detecting and cycling.

Very nice pictures. Took me a second or two on the "one" you threw in on the last group. Well done!

Great photos!

Is that picture above the goldfinch a view from the Grand St. Lucian? Sure looks a lot like the view from my room when I was on my honeymoon.

What kind of a lens are you using. The one on my camera is great for close-ups but I need something else for distance.

I don't know that much about cameras. I have a Cannon Digital Rebel XTi that I bought at a pawn shop. The instructions were in Spanish. It takes great pictures. Sometimes i can't make out a detail on something but it shows up on a picture. I don't think it's that great for distance shots though.
