These shots were taken with an SX-50 in "green box" mode, full zoom plus digital zoom (4800mm equivalent) handheld. To the naked eye the ducks were just dots and you could not tell what kind of bird they were.

I realize these shots are not National Geographic quality, but for a cheap P/S zoomed out like that, it is amazing that you can get this much detail and that the IS actually worked!

Is a remarkable camera, alright.  Well done Don.
