John Ellis: Horrible, murderous house sparrows that have decimated song birds everywhere. The person that though it was such a good idea to bring over here from Europe all the birds in Shakespeare's plays should have been hanged. These birds are one of only a few not protected by federal law, so shoot away at them. If you live in a new subdivision you will have normal songbirds for only awhile and then these monsters move in and kill your bluebirds in their nests.

You're right about the sparrows! That's why especially in our towns we dont't get many other birds to shoot at :(

John Ellis: All told, these are amazing photos--very high quality at long zoom and make me want to look into a P900 to just have along on trips. Great wildlife photos here; good work!

Thank you very much for your kind words of appreciation! I'm happy you like my shots, especially as I'm a photo hobbyist only. For instance, that image was shot rather unexpectedly: I just came out of small forest near our town, as I saw that hoopoe; my camera was at ready, so I shot two shots and then the bird flew away.

Just look how Mark, a forum colleague, caught your ISS from the planet Earth, with the most amazing P&S ever, the Nikon P900:

On photo Taking Flight in the Landscape Photo with a Living Foreground Element. challenge (2 comments in total)

Believe me, my friend, when I saw a landscape challenge, I thought you have not only participated, but also have won one of the places of the podium!

And guess what? I was right :)

That image is an example why you have upgraded to a D5300: with a P&S you wouldn't stand a chance to such clarity and detail at 1/2000.

Congratulations again,

Augustin

karlchwe: So.... What's the best camera?

Kidding!!!

(No, seriously)

Not at all, it's under $600 and weights 900g with the battery in it! I'd suggest to give it a try :)

Nikon P900 - did you ever have an eq. 135 2000mm reach and usable handheld images too ?!

In reply to:

kodakrome: Yes, all cameras these days are great. But that's one reason why people complain about reviews. No matter what camera you buy, no matter how happy you are with it, no matter how good your pictures are - you'll spend the rest of your life being told that other cameras are better and maybe you should have made a different choice.

That's only if you prefer to read reviews instead of enjoying your images :) BTW, I'm only a zoom addicted hobbyist (i.e. compacts only, no DSLRs), but I always buy cameras after seeing several user images and not by the reviewer opinions.
