    Rather than crosspost (which is against the rules), I'll just link you to the penguin pictures from my other thread. Enjoy!

Others from that family that are found in North America are the Pauraque, Common poor-will, Chuck-will's-widow, Common Nighthawk, and Lesser Nighthawk.

    S2 birders

    I love the detail on the greenfinch's feathers. Quite an excellent texture! I have never seen a Capercaillie although I believe I have heard a band by that name. I believe they were Scottish and may have spelled it with a K.

    Great shots with the Canon S2's everybody. I am almost embarrased to post mine in this company as I am not quite used to my tele-extender yet. Well, here goes.....

    The first one I believe is a downy woodpecker but there is a slight chance it is a hairy woodpecker. The second one is an attempt to get a hovering hummingbird in the morning light. I believe I had to push the ISO a bit to get enough light.

    Birds!

    Ooooh, birds, my favorite subject. There are some gorgeous pictures in this thread!

    I've been lurking for a while. Before the forum change, I posted here quite a bit, but then went away for a while 'cause I didn't need, couldn't afford, and couldn't let myself look at new cameras. But I came back to research the Digital Rebel XT before buying one, and I've been catching up reading here. Then I came across the bird thread. I can't resist the bird thread.

    These are a couple of my older bird pics, both taken in Morro Bay on a sailing trip down the California coast in 2001, with my now old Olympus C2100 UZ.

    A Great Blue Heron, having found food:


    A Night Heron on the dock:


    I'll be back, especially if I can capture the Rufous Hummingbird who just decided to stake out our feeder as his territory, despite overwhelming numbers of Broad-Tailed Hummingbirds who felt it was theirs first.

    Oh, and a pelican

    I just came across another I really like from that Morro Bay trip in 2001, also from the Olympus C2100 UZ.

    All of these photos have, at most, a Photoshop auto levels applied, and no other editing aside from resizing for posting.

    Bluejay-digital zoom

    Playing around with the digital zoom until lens adapter arrives. I was actually pleasantly surprised at the feather detail at 27x! Shot in 2048x1536 resolution.

    Nice digital zoom I love the s2 (im not biased or anything!) What settings did you use for that one, If you remember.

    And how do I display pics on forum mine just become links.

    Thanks

    To display the pics, on my screen there is a square box and if I put the cursor over the box it says, "Insert Image". To the right of that is what you used - Insert Hyperlink, I would guess.

    But on the digital zoom. Mostly automatic although I was using P mode, but I didn't adjust anything - I guess that is what amazed me when I looked at the shot on computer screen. Looking at the EXIF data, it says:
    1/125 @ f4.0, Metering was Evaluative, Digital Zoom was 2.531x or 30x (12x2.531), Normal processing, Fine compression, and resolution of 2048x1536. Other than the resolution I didn't do anything other than snap

    The biggest help to getting a shot like that is lighting. Until the sun travels farther South, I have a window of opportunity of about one hour early in the morning where the sun is hitting the stump and the background is completely black - due to tree shadows behind the stump. Later in the day, I don't even try.
