New camera/ Ducklings are awesome.

I got a new camera!  The one I got for Christmas (the Canon Powershot SX20IS) is awesome but I wanted to try my hand at DSLR's.  I got a Canon EOS Rebel T1i (500D) and I took it out to a pond this afternoon for some testing... I only tried the auto options and a zoom lens that I bought on sale from Amazon.

I was surprised and excited to find four Redheads in the pond...

 By the way, is this a pale Mallard mama or something else completely?

So far so good with the camera.. It takes pictures soooo much faster than my other camera that I ended up taking 575 pictures in less than an hour.  This is no good!  I'll end up with 5000 after a day out and about!
