    These shots were taken as I muttered under my breath "focus damn it, focus" full zoom (10x) on a Fuji S5100.

    ...and a whole lotta patience. Lucky for me this guy was in no hurry to go anywhere.

    Great DOF here and I really like the composition in the second one. I too mutter that phrase a lot!

    **thinks to self** Another great shot made possible by my high demands on low-end cameras. I recommended the S5100 and as seen, it pulled through again :D

    Thanks! As soon as I'd get into a good position either the wind came up, or he decided to fly to another branch. :)

    Nice Shots, just shows you dont need great expensive cameras for great shots, just patience and a reasonbable zoom and pixel res. Thats why ive decided to stay with my S7000 as im so chuffed with it!
