Re: You are likely to get a lot of birds.... here are a couple.

Ok.. here are some samples of SX40 birds in the wild.. I typically shoot at -1/3EV sometime more as the camera does like to clip highlights. I like to use the multiple exposure mode to shoot a bunch of pictures and then sort out the keepers later. I use the viewfinder almost exclusively for birds with the small center focus point. The camera does a pretty good job even at 1.5X digital zoom if needed. I do post processing in Lightroom mostly for cropping, contrast and a little sharpening. I envy the guys with the big glass, but I really can't justify the cost for the number of hours I get out to do this stuff. I have a bunch more samples in the Smugmug "Nature" folder if you are interested. Link below. Best regards.

Osprey profile... He did not seem to respond to "Smile" or "Watch the Birdie". I have this one printed 11X14 and it looks very good.

He was more interested in a fresh seafood lunch

Male and Female Pintail Ducks..

Little Green Heron...
