All I could wait was 2 hours for the battery to charge and I had to take some pics. I bought myself a canon XS with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens. With the purchase of the camera I got a EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens for free. I realize its not that great of a lens, but for free I won't complain. Very amature shots, but I have little experience even with a point and shoot. I liked this first photo because it looks like the bird is standing by a mirror 1. 2. 3.
