Lovely shot. Colours are great. Well worth the wait.
Know what you mean about the noise. Once the motors running you need to hope you've got the shot. If the padding works to quite it down let me know.
Great shot. Adds so muh more life to the shot when there is some movement. Not easy to capture, sometimes you've just gotta fire and hope for the best, digital is great for this as you can just dump those that don't work. Superb...
A good shot for one of your first. It leaves plenty for the imagination. Well done.
As and when you start looking for a Digital SLR, you would do well to look at the 20D or 350D from Canon. Both get rave reviews and are not too overpriced, (I am only slightly biased towards Canon, nope very biased) Some good deals on Ebay but watch who you buy from.
Good shot, nice colouring. Regularly go out on the search for Adders to photograph. Had quite a good spot at the Langdon Nature Reserve, however this got spoilt and the readily available subjects moved on.
Great shot, great colours and composition. Also impressed by the quality of the lens with x2. Spent much deliberation over Sigma and Canon, opted for Canon but maybe could have got more for the same money.
