Tuft Titmouse

By glazzaro  
Seasons Greetings All

Well its Friday and the last day of work before my week off, I am excited. John (yjeep) and I are heading out to a special place next week where we hope to catch some eagles diving into the water for fish, that should give my D3 a good work out!

Ok here is another shot with the Auto ISO set on, it was a sunny day but the location in the woods there was more shade then not. Still when I saw that the camera selected an ISO of 3600 I was a bit nervous thinking that the camera had snapped. When I got back to the house I was excited to see that the shot was not overexposed and the detail was fantastic. I am really loving the new features of the D3. Ok you all have a wonderful and safe holiday and may the New Year bring you all peace and prosperity!

How I would love to see that. Do you perhaps need a bearer to carry your kit. I would do it for free!!. Have a great trip Gregg.

That's one heck of a camera Greg.
If I dare to go much above ISO400 the noise levels start to soar.
Stay lucky,
