You're off to a great start, judging by your flickr stream! Enjoy the very capable camera and the well-deserved springtime in my hometown... keep shooting until it rains, then order a WR lens and... keep shooting!

Thank you all for welcoming me.I have to say that I already learned a lot from this forum .I am starting from scratch.Bought my camera with kit lens 18-55 mm AL WR .Then after reading some reviews I jumped on those metal primes .Kit lens is no longer with me.I like to shoot birds probably because they challenging me so much.Long way ahead ...I will try to keep my eyes open and shutter hot
