The nimble and nifty Nikon D40

Challenge #4 in the Nouns and Verbs series. Hosted by Bob Yanal.
Challenge has finished
The 6-megapixel Nikon D40, sometimes maligned on Dpreview forums but reviewed quite well elsewhere, is a very popular DSLR. On Flickr alone, the D40 is, among all Nikons, the second most popular camera: Flickr counts 30 million items (only the D80 bests it at 43 million). And Nikon.com still lists it. Submit your best D40 shot. No restrictions on subject matter (or lens). But: EXIF must accompany your photo, else I'll disqualify it.

This was taken late in the afternoon of a beautiful Spring day at Nisqually Wildlife Refuge shortly before the Dike Trail was closed permanently as part of an estuary reclamation project.
