Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

A small bird

Is oft' heard

Whistling all year long

Chikadee dee dee dee

Thru' snow and rain,

It sings its song~

"I will remain

Free to be me~

A Black-capped Chickadee

Sitting in an Olive tree."

(My poetry AJP )

These little birds come to our feeder all year... they are peace abiding birds. This is a picture I shot of it today after all the snow melted yesterday.

    Thanks to everyone for your kind words...Yes, Martie, the
    Chickadee is a super fast bird and I appreciate what you said. It only stayed on the branch an instant before it flew away...But you have grab that instant before it is gone.
