Clark's Nutcracker

I took this picture through a window and looking through another tree, at max zoom, so it's not bad, all things considered.


  1. by the way, what kind of camera/lens combo do you have? been meaning to ask.

  2. I'm not smart enough to use a fancy camera with interchangeable lenses. Mine is a two-year-old point and shoot, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 with 12x optical zoom. I think I paid a little over $200 for it back in the fall of 2007.

    I also use Google's free photo editing software Picasa (free download at It's nothing like Photoshop, but it's great for cropping, straightening and adjusting some of the light effects. You have to get pretty close with the original photo, but Picasa can make a good shot look great.
