adamfam,

Can you tell me what kind of camera you used for these shots? I am in the process of researching digital cameras and your pictures are very impressive.

Thanks!!

Melissa

Earthtraveler. My wife shot the volcano pictures with her Canon 10D handheld on manuel focus with the ISO set to 800. The shutter was open approx. 6 sec.
Seawitch. Different distances for different birds. The Honeycreepeers were about 30 ft., the Toucans were about 30-40 ft., and others were hundreds of feet away.
Dan and Melissa. Both my wife and I have Canon 10D cameras. I have a 100-400 IS lens and my wife has a 70-300 IS lens. We both shot handheld. Canon also has a 20D and a 30D which have 8.1mp as compared to our 6.1mp.
The Image Stabilized lens really helps with the clarity.
We also edit the results with our digital imaging software.
I'd be happy to answer any other questions you might have.
Bill

In reponse to Jed and Suzi2's suggestions on using Tiny URL, I attempted to make the change, but being a URL "gringo" I don't know if I did it right. Can anyone tell me if it is working properly?
Thanks for any help.

Don't feel too bad. I was not able to get it to work either.

Signed,

I have a few more photos ready on the Kodak site:http://www.kodakgallery.com/Slidesho...y=-nata6v&Ux=0
You can access all 3 albums if believe. More to come as I have time.
Hope you enjoy them.

Thanks for sharing everything. I love the pictures and was wondering what camera you were using. Saw that response and hope my Pentax *ist will perform up to the task. We're going in about 4 weeks. Very excited!

Randy,
Thanks for the nice comments. My wife used the Pentax IST on last years trip. Loved the camera but didn't have a very good lens so was limited. You should get some great shots.

adam - about 'tinyurl'

1- copy the url of the page you want.

2- Paste it into the box 'enter a long url to make tiny' which is on tinyurl.com's page.

3- Click on 'make tiny url'

4- You get a page 'tiny URL was created'

5- Highlight and copy the 'http://tinyurl.com/........' which appears.

6- Use that instead of the long original URL.

7- Have another cup of coffee and toast yourself to a job well done.

Wow, what a gorgeous collection of bird photos! Again, thanks for posting them. It's hard to choose a favorite, but I'm really digging that motmot. Killer colors, and with that flamboyant tail, he must drive the lady motmots crazy!

The pictures are incredible! They bring back lots of memories of our many hours spent out looking at the birds. Might even be a couple that we haven't seen before or at least only see very rarely. I'll have to check the list for that black and white owl. Feel free to add more! I never get tired of looking at them. Makes me want to get out the camera and lenses and take some pictures.
