Playing with my new Rebel

I went to CNC at lunch today, to play with my new camera. Signs of spring included plenty of yellow-

forsythias

daffodils

and American Goldfinches,
changing to gold right before my eyes.


Look! I'm officially a birding blog - I have photos of birds!

Northern Cardinal

Brown-headed Cowbird

White-throated Sparrow

Red-bellied Woodpecker

Here's what happens when you have been messing around with the white balance feature of your camera, and try shooting outdoors with your camera set on "Tungsten Light."

A Blue Robin.

I heard lots of singing, too,
especially Carolina Chickadees

and American Toads.
Ribbett!

Really, you should try it. It's worth it now!

Don't these cameras make it easy to take good pictures? Can't wait to see more!

SO much fun! That last toad pic is now my desktop photo. Still, I can see there's a lot to learn. Stick with me, folks. I'll get there.

Great shots, Kathi! I've got a Rebel XSi, and I absolutely love it! I hope you'll enjoy your new toy as much as I'm enjoying mine.
