That's our state bird here in Washington. Don't know why as it isn't here year round! That's a handsome looking tube feeder - looks so nice, new and clean! Wow, just noticed the EXIF, ISO 800 1/25 sec - looking good!

Nice shot. Is that a natural eye color or a play of the light?

Hi Bill, The Cormorant has that intense natural eye color.

Can't help on the ID Bill, but its a nice shot. I think the window glass just "softens" the image a little. I find it extremely difficult to get a sharp shot through a window, no matter how clean the glass.

This is an excellent sharp shot Bill. The squirrel's fur has lots of detail, which makes it look really good.

Vickie, I envy your bird pics soooo much !
In reply to myssvictoria, Apr 28, 2014

Needless to say, I'm still struggling with my FZ70, and these are what I've managed so far :

Tiger Shrike in our hills

Giving us a last glance before scooting off

Our local dandelion

A wild orchid in our hills .. maybe I should post this in the macro section, but it's not quite there either

Some kind of local chameleon

You're simply too kind, Rodger .. I'm still fiddling with it to try to achieve IQ as good as that from my FZ150, but still failing miserably. My main problem is in the focussing. Only consolation is that macro with a Raynox DCR-250 is equally easy/difficult
