Playing with my 'new' Canon Powershot SX60 HS.

Birds are a great challenge because they dart around so quickly. I'm learning that to get a good bird shot, I need to practice hand stabilization...and to use anything nearby as a support when a tripod isn't readily available.

Here are a few I snapped recently. These are some of funner images. What do you think?

Blackbird on his tippy toes to get the apply goodness

Baby Wagtail, having a rest on the top of  stone wall

Baby Wagtail -- "What's down there?"
