1st Bird and Squirrel photos with SX50
Apr 6, 2013

I have to admit that these were very difficult to get.

The wind was so strong, even leaning the camera or myself against a tree didn't help. I had trouble keeping the subjects in the viewfinder let alone trying to steady them enough to actually get a semi-sharp photo but I did manage these 2. Really goes a lot to say how good the image stabilization is on this camera and at full 215mm/1200mm telephoto.

I have no idea what kind of bird it is but I am sure there are many here that can tell me that. I know it had beautiful coloring.

Heavily cropped - from 4000x3000 down to 1423x1067 so no reduction. Crop only.

Original cropped to 1875x2501 then reduced to around 1067x1423
