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 female pine grosbeak poses on a tamarak in our yard. This particular bird is quite tame, but they all have become much more tame since they arrived about three weeks ago. We now have a group of about 20 of these birds coming to our feeders and entertaining us with a soft, sweet melody..

A very special "Thank You" to Regenia Brabham for the nomination!! It is much appreciated.
