Quiet! Amateur at work.
Buzzards at breakfast. At my local wildlife refuge in Oregon's Willamette Valley.
Occasionally I need to remind myself just how difficult it is to photograph birds in flight. I mean, many of you do it so well- so often- that I (almost) forget why I stopped trying .
Hell, I barely got this slow-moving, gigantic relic from the past.
I was shooting with my super duper pooper scooper digital P&S with a long (optical) zoom.

I am happy to say these are both real turkey (buzzards) Charlie. First shot made me hungry, but the IF shot is my pick ~ Ron

Thank you for the kind words Tom, Birdie and Ken.
I'm glad these are okay, but I know my place in this world of taking pictures, and thrilling images of wildlife ain't part of the equation.
But I was pretty good at taking honest candids of people as I traveled through foreign and exotic countries. I just can't post them on the Bird and Flower Forum .

You done good Charlie! Pulling off a BIF with shutter lag is a trick.

Thanks Ron, Karl, Morris, John, Eric, Don, Ken, Per, Mike, Socrate and Jim.
It warms the cuck-holds O' me heart () to hear such nice words of encouragement.
Yeah, Mike; I'm a long-time 35mm fan, and the shutter lag you mention was an undelightful pain-in-buttock surprise after I bought the little Canon digital. Sigh. That simple P&S is the most complicated bit of machinery I've ever owned- and I once tried to set a digital watch .

I would have gagged had this been a black vulture. You did just fine Charlie.

Charlie, to capture this with a P&S is very nicely done.
