Chickens and geese I can get galore. The rest are not cooperating.

That kind certainly don't fly away when you're shooting, huh! Looks like a winner to me!

I got a couple of shots today I can't identify. She's building a nest in the nestbox my grandson built for me recently and he was tickled pink when I told him, but I don't know what she is. Resembles a mockingbird, but I've never seen a mockingbird use a nestbox. Have any of you? I'll post the pics later when I get them downloaded.

I did try to get a photo of some goldfinches. When I downloaded my images, I had two really great photos of the feeder.

Ok, next tip:
  • Select "S" on the dial
  • Find how to set shutter speed to 1/1000 on your camera. Mine uses the joystick
  • Adjust higher or lower for one that doesn't turn red
The faster your shutter speed, but more likely you can catch those things with wings!

Meanwhile, post your chickens and geese!

I am also new to the wonderfull digital world.
I found the "S" on my dial and set it for 1000 as you said. I noticed it goes all the way to 2000. Would that be even better?
There is an F2.8 next to that. What does that tell me? Is it adjustable also?
There is also a +/- sign to the right of that. What would this be used for and where should this be adjusted?
Contact me private if you would prefer but I think it would benefit all of us future threadbearers out there............
