Wordless Wednesday #48~ Springing Birds

From my backyard.  Actually most from my couch!
 Using Mr. G's new little Power Shot SX260 HS 20X IS Canon Camera.  It zooms in much closer than my DSL Nikon and I don't have to constantly switch lenses or return the cap to the lens.  However, it's so small, it's hard for me to hold steady for the big zoom in pics.

 Only a couple of these did I have to unsharp with Gimp.

Thanks to the FREE programs:
possibly used for this post
GIMP for cropping & other digital effects
 Photoscape for downsizing & watermarking photo
PicMonkey creating collages used on this page


  1. Wow! That camera really does zoom! Nice shots! Love the grackle!

    1. Thanks Brian for identifying the blue headed black bird for me! (and the comment as well.)

  2. Can't believe you managed such beautiful captures with a little power shot. Impressive! Those yellow birds really pop against the grey-ish sky. Thanks so much for joining our first week of the Spring Photo Challenge! Friday we move onto Turquoise/Splash! :)

  3. some pretty fabulous pictures for a point and shoot, technology amazes me. I love the yellow finch.

  4. Geez, I was saving for a DSL zoom lense, maybe a power shot is a better option!

  5. Oh so beautiful! Love the cardinal best!

  6. Wow ! Magnificent photography of beautiful birds ~ some of the gems of nature ~ ^_^
