Sharing some of the first shots using my new camera!!! Not real happy with them, but it's a start!! Moving from the handy "point and shoot" to the bit more complicated digital SLR....but these were done in "auto mode"!! HA!! Haven't learned enough yet to go further!! I believe this is a black-billed magpie. I've seen them in flight before, but never sitting long enough for me to take a picture!! This guy stayed for a long time, until frightened off by a passing car. I was hoping to see the eagle again, so that I could get some shots with the new camera...but no such luck.
