awesome!!!! so where these taken and then zoomed in for cloe-up details? How close was she able to get? How much X zoom did she use? Did she have to go into her digital zoom? Lots of questions .....but I'm still trying to figure out how she gets such good clear pics. Tripod? I could keep on asking if only I could get my lower jaw raised!!!!! I'm still in awe out how great they are!!! I caught the sun justright the other day and played with some close-ups of flowers......was I doing something wrong or is it just how you have to take a close up? I had to get within 2 inches of the flower!! The pics were pretty nice....was just amazed at how close I had to get!

Thanks,
These pics. were taken hand held, about 14 feet away, some are further 20 feet with auto about 35x - 50x zoom, no cropping after, only the second pic. was photo shopped a little, rest of the photos are out of the camera. She prefer no photoshop.
At this time of the year when fruits are fermented, birds get a bit tipsy and you can get pretty close.
