With this blog I have begun a journey to improve my photography skills. My goal is to take photos everyday, and post my favorite photo from that day on this blog. So far, I have learned a lot, and try to share my experiences. Many of you have made comments on the blog, via email, or when you see me in person. I really appreciate all of them. I learn a lot from each of you.
I hope that you will join me in my journey, and help me along the way. I have so much to learn.

May 20, 2010, Bird
This is one of those photos where I'm amazed at the camera equipment. I was using the telephoto lens from a long way away. I had to crop the photo substantially so that the bird wouldn't look like a dot on the screen. I'm amazed that the photo came out this clear without using a tripod.
Do any of you bird watchers know what type of bird this is?
Take photos even if you think they will be failures. You never know when they might work. This is especially true with digital cameras, because there is very little cost.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/1000 sec, Aperture f/2.8, ISO 100, Focal Length 200 mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, hand held.
