    Actually two half decent shots of a Goldfinch after two years of trying. Shot with Panasonic 45-200 full out. I need a longer lens. About a 30% crop on both.

    Nicely done :)

    I have yet to get crisp shots of birds. They never cooperate.

    These are really good Ron. I can't (for the life of me) get a decent picture of a bird - not even a robin. Good focus, really cool bird.

    Thanks folks.

    Paul, I shot a Robin yesterday with my totally manual Vivitar 70-210 Series 1 f3.5. I have to carry by the lens for fear of breaking the mount.

    Good for you, perseverance does pay off. If it took you 2 years, I feel good about 5. :mrgreen:


    You really captured the colors well.

    I have a Cardinal that visits my backyard that I have been thinking about photographing. It's not there every day but when I do see it it is a very striking bird! Of course I usually only see it as I am getting ready for work, never on the weekends.

    Nice job!
