Flight

After about a month off just returned from my parents farm. It was cold averaging 32 F (0 C).

Gave myself a present of a camera: Canon 50D and Lens: EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L USM.

Have to say I am loving it and feel like I am starting all over. Which is a good thing.

Caught this little sparrow (I think this is a sparrow... correct me if I am wrong) right before he took off.

Since I am not knowledgeable about US sparrows, I can't say. In my part of the world it would be a lbj (stands for little brown job, not lovely blow job as you may have been thinking). Takes some time to categorise a lbj. Judging by the beak, at least it would be part of the sparrow family.

[Heh, heh] why a 50D? There is a 7D and a 5DmkII new on the market grin
John Eagle: Ha ha I thought lbj stood for Lyndon B. Johnson a former U.S. president. tongue

I got the 50D for $800. I don't have the $1,500 or $2,000 for a 7D or 5D. And I want to take a trip to say Mexico (close and inexpensive) the flight will be $400.

I got it used from a local TV station news director who had barely used it - 5,000 clicks and he just bought a new 5D.
