These photos really came out sharper than I would have thought. I suppose I like the second one best.

There you have it!

I had it on A mode to blur out the background, but I didn't have a lot of time, since this little finch had already been patient enough to watch me switch lenses I decided not to push my luck too far :)

I was walking in a forest were a lot more living thing should be, but since we were with a group of about 15, they would have all stayed half a mile away from us... Not this one though :)

The most important thing I guess would be spot metering. Aim for the bird dead center, focus and recompose. Since I've started using the spot metering/recompose method I've noticed a lot less pictures gone bad because the camera decided to focus on the little branch just in front of the birdy :)
