Sue Thomas: thanks so much for your very detailed description of techniques you used. I really appreciate it.
Lynda: Though you wouldn’t know it from my scrapbook pages, my main interest in photography is photographing birds. The lens I’ve used most is one that zooms to 250mm, but I wanted to be able to get more detailed shots and I have a limited budget. I ended up getting a bridge camera (Canon PowerShot SX60HS) which zooms to forever. I’m so happy with it. I’m able to get really good close-up shots of birds that I couldn’t get with my regular zoom lens.
