Don't be envious Bev, your wildlife shots are way better than mine!! Interesting that this planet is a small place, as I think you live on C****** P****** (?) Believe it or not, I do too, have done for nearly 6 years, and am more of a beginner than you!
What tele lens are you using on your D70 for wildlife? It's a cracker, whatever it is. (Sigma f4?, Canon L?). I've only just joined this forum, will have to explore the e2 options soon. Dave.

You must be on the other side then Dave! I see these blighters through the walnut tree and can hear them most days but blowed if I can catch one on cameraSad
Sigma 70-300 (cheaper version), sometimes with a 1.4 converter(?), nikon 18-200VR, 50m 'prime' & nikon 18-70. Haven't a clue what 'f' cos I'm a right numptySmile

Among the others, your skylark pic and the Adonis blue are seriously cool, Bev. Numpty indeed! They knock spots off many pro shots! My philosophy at sixty-something is that if you can get a cracking sharp shot, does it matter a lot what lens/f-number/shutter-speed etc we are using?? The final pictures say it all. Nice to know there are at leaset 2 serious woodpecker picture-takers on CP :o)
I use a Sigma 18-50 EX (bargain find on ebay..), an older and cheaper Canon 75-300 IS, and a wacky little Zeiss Flektogon 35mm f2.4 from the 60s with an adapter for a prime sometimes, the latter is the best fun of all of them but takes a lot of patience in manual mode. When the occasional pics are set right they really rock, especially macro ones! Sharper than today's lenses often :o) Dave.
P.S. I had a crack at the CP field egrets earlier this year - but flat-out 300mm as they were quite far away, didn't do them full justice. Some not bad though for the distance. Am learning slowly!
