    For a moment, I thought you went out to 'shoot' some wildlife!
    That wouldn't be such a good idea :D

    i did have a scare as the delivery man made a mistake and the package was lost at one point. luckily it showed up in the end.

    the hummingbird always shows up when i don't have my camera with me. sometimes it will hang around me for 5mins just because it knows that my camera is not around. the moment i walk inside to get the camera, it will zip away really quickly.

    Hmm..

    ...yep, that's one nice & flexible lens as it can shoot at close up distances, and even reg. portrait shots. Canon has a few of those macro lenses, if i remember correctly. Imagine if one adds one of those extension lenses, it can really zoom in even further.:cool:
    Yeah, it's a popular lens, kwun. That's why it almost got lost... ;)
    ..i actually saw a couple of hummingbirds this weekend (while capturing some shots). However, since the weather was so dang hot out there, the birds decided to stay cool under some shades. Ah well...:p
    kwun, you might have to go & hang around SF's Lombard Street to capture those hummingbirds... :);)
    ..hmmm, or kwun might've sold his other lenses... ;):cool:

    Hmm...

    ..i was thinking, if an extender lens/tube was used to take these pics, perhaps we'll see hundreds of thousands more of those winking and rolleyes images...All making up the overall icon(s)...;)

    Just to waste a few minutes of my time....

    The photo look ok, but I brightened up the face + neck area (right photo) to look fairer :) (am I?).

    Nice one scann. I don't get enough time on the computer to brush up on those skills.

    Here are some more - I know Kwun and another BF member are looking for more:)
