Eyeguy, I left the camera out for 1 day and had 800+ pictures, some very good photos but lots of tube feeders blowing in the wind too so those went to the other end of the feeder for a couple days. Then in a moment of stupidity I x'd out of the wrong window and poof, all gone. That's a bad angle for focus, it's just my game camera dangling about 1 -1 1/2 foot away on a piece of junk angle iron at a bad angle but it worked for my purpose. I had it on 8 MP, I'll try further away and 10 MP. I will say it does look pretty dumb. I had lots of clear worse looking pictures of the bird from hell but they got deleted.
