Just awesome! Like the beak and eye, and the way the light comes through. Well captured.
Bee shot: No I did not use any filters or makro lens, still saving for that! The macro lens is more expensive than the camera itself :( - will wait for the price to come down. I found a dealer that sells the tele conversion lens at a reasonable price - would you recommend this lens? Does it make a big difference? With the bee shot I only used the Adaptor ring without the lens hood because the light was very sharp - 9.35am. "My bees" are use to me getting in their faces, they don't fly away anymore :))

@Ina: I do recommend the Sony 1.7 X tele-converter. But, don't waist your money on a 2 or 3X converter. I tried a 3 X off brand tele-converter and the results are unusable. The photo above was taken with the Sony 1.7 X tele-converter. Thanks for all your comments Ina!
Forgot to say, I have also cropped away about 1" on the left and top of the photo :)

Beautiful light and terrific detail. With all the swirling branches, it's amazing how well your center of attention stands out. Really nice!

That is a terrific shot. His eye is so blue.
I saw my first robin of the year the other day. It is amazing how exciting we get up here over something like that.
