Thanks Dustin, as discouraging as that is.  Am I correct in my observation that there is less functionality on the phone than at the computer - that was even more disappointing.

As Downy crept up and down, fairly slowly, I had difficulty getting the focus point shifted and as you say the response was slow.  However, I did get a few good shots and this would improve if I backed off a bit.

Love that male cardinal!  And, while we're on the subject of red birds, here's a so-called "rufous morph" Red-tailed Hawk.

I realized I'd left out the data on that rufous Red Tail.   5Diii, 400 DO, shot at ISO 320, 1/1600 at f7.1, M setting, central focus points only.  Here's another image of the same bird.

Awesome as always Steven!

Hi Folks.
A couple of mine. Rook or Crow?  :-\   Not as exotic as some but its what I got! Thanks to all for inspiration and a reason to strive to improve, hopefully one day I will take a really good picture or even a good picture. Looking at some here I feel my pics may be unworthy of posting!  :-[

Both with 40D and Sigma 150-500 Jpegs straight from camera!
