First Outing With The New Nikon V1

First I headed out to Coal Oil Point Reserve in Goleta, where there is a nesting site for Snowy Plovers.  They are cute and entertaining little birds, and did not mind at all having their photos taken.

 Back at home, the female Scott's Oriole came for a visit and actually stayed still
long enough for a nice photo shoot.

New Camera!!!

Hearing good reports, I wnet and got a new Nikon V1 to hopefully improve my digiscoping results.
So far so good, here are the results of the first shots.  It seems to be easier to get crisp photos.
