My first Hummer (that's what she said) My wife likes it, so I start telling her about 'Birding' lenses. Didn't go so well. Guess I'll keep cropping.

Went out in the canoe today and got to sit and watch the loons feeding. I should have used a faster shutter speed on the first shot.... I am learning bird photography and having a fun time!

Here is an image of a baby Pigeon, made with iPhone 4S ... this chick was well concealed in a corner behind the ledge of our office exhaust fan (I guess the Mama Pigeon was making sure cool air-conditioned air from our office to protect her baby from the intense desert heat ... what a smart move) ... the only way I could make this image was with my iPhone stuck through the exhaust fan, aiming at this bird, as the gap was too narrow for any camera, let alone my DSLR, to fit.

Wow! That was a big one! Good catch! And I mean the fish - compliment to the team! :)

Well either you or your iPhone or both need a medal of honour. Good picture.
