It's beginning to look a lot like Spring time!

I got a new camera for my birthday so I thought I would take some test shots of the birds outside our window on our neighbor's tree. It comes with the standard 18-55mm lens and also the 70-300mm lens so I can capture subjects from a little farther away than the 55mm-200mm lens I had. My old trusty camera (the Nikon D60)the lenses, and everything I have acquired to use with it sold on eBay. I was so sad to see it go, I actually cried. I've never been so attached to my electronics, LOL.
I think it's time I learn to use the manual settings of the camera (it's a Nikon 5200) so I can focus beyond the branches and leaves in the foreground.  I got it from Costco and it's not too late to get one for yourself and take advantage of the manufacture's rebate which expires at the end of this month.
