Finished up a chilly day with a raptor walk at Wavecrest. Saw red-shoulder, red-tail, and Coopers hawks, kestrels, kites (including kiting, where they hover for up to a minute), and lots of owl pellets, as well as a few non-raptor birds. Not great photography conditions for a simple digital camera, and I had it in black and white... I did get a few movies of kites flying. After coming home, I went out and got a few sunset shots and movies.

The original (full size and quality) picture can then be viewed by clicking in turn on
the medium size picture (warning, these are large, typically about 3 MBytes,
so the can be slow to load, and might be too large for your monitor.
The large images are good for seeing fine detail, and for printing

Movies are MPEG4 movies, and the thumbnail gives the size of the movie.
