Lucky you had some kind of camera. They are pretty good shots. Your wife should be more careful and check that you have everything before she leaves you.
Does that last sentence has a different meaning!?!?! Do you know something I don't.............?Actually she uses the 100-400 most of the time now, I only use it occasionally when I pop out for a walk if I have a break in my work schedule.
Looks like you did well regardless. Great series of shots if you ask me.
Nice shots for a compact camera..... having co-operative subjects must help.
For perched birds it's OK, the EVF (on this model) isn't great though, especially after getting so used to optical viewfinders DSLRs. And the IQ leaves a lot to be desired if you pixel peep.
