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 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.

I do not pretend to be an expert here and it was pure luck that she was not moving around too much. I thought it was near sunset and I was still using Auto WB so there is a golden tint to the whole image...the exposure appears to be spot on because I do not see too much noise...
