...to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free....

My first bird.

Trying to figure out all the buttons and gizmos,
plus trying to work the telephoto,
plus trying to keep up with this teenager.

I love his tell-tale baby-spotted head.
He's trying to look so cool.

I also love my new camera.

Canon Rebel XSi.
For you that asked.....

  3. Mike, great shot! From what I've read, that camera is very highly rated. What size telephoto did you get? Hope you have a much fun shooting birds as I do!
