    It is unusual but very attractive.

    You do very well without a telephoto lens. I thought you had one to get pictures so clear and detailed!

    Hi Z, I do have a telephoto it’s a 55-250mm. It’s a great lens, but I need at least a 400mm lens according to all the professional bird photographers. Actually, with the type of portraits I take mostly, I’m afraid it will be a while before I acquire a large long range lens. The lens I should get first and I’m saving for it as we speak is the 100mm fixed macro lens.

    I just have my point and shoot with a 12x optical zoom built in. I used to visit the Cornell Lab of Ornithology fb page a lot and even posted a few pictures, but got so intimidated by the super shots that some of the bird photographers took, with their amazing cameras, that I can’t stand looking at it anymore. I think it’s envy.

    It would be nice if you had a wealthy relative to whom you could drop hints. But saving up for it is better. By the time you have enough saved up the price may be lower!

    Hi Z, I shot for 10 years on my point and shoot. For many years, I only shot single frame video captures of the squirrels on the Permafrost Ranch. 640X480 72dpi was it. Many of the squirrel portraits you see was shot on a video camera from the past. My first point and shoot, I shot with for 10 years. Last year was the first dslr I have acquired to use. I’m no where near professional level with my entry level dslr by Cannon. It’s most likely more camera than I’ll ever need.
