Fabulous photos! Thanks for posting them.

Now, please tell me what kind of camera you are using. I am in the market to upgrade my digital camera and am looking for somewhere to start looking!



Wonderful photos! I too will be looking for a new digital camera sometime soon and would love to know what kind you use.


Meredith and Diane:
Thanks for commenting. I use a Nikon D80 that came packaged with an 18-55mm lens and an 55-200mm lens. There is a lot more I could do with it, but I'm still learning. I would suggest getting one of the many guide books out there when you get a new camera: the manuals are very dry and hard to read.

I lvoe the D80, though. It's not as fancy as the D300 but works just well enough for my level of skill (slightly better than beginning, but only slightly). And it's cheaper.

Hope this helps!


What a show! We have them here in Ohio as well, but not in my backyard. Maybe I'll try put up a feeder for them to see if they come :o)
