I would suggest either widening your aperture if possible to increase shutter speed or if this is not possible up your iso, this will give a sharper result in low light.

Lovely photos Lynn. #1 just needs a levels adjustment to brighten it up a bit. #2 looks pretty OK. #3 looks a bit out of focus and a levels bump would brighten it up a bit. When you are practicing around the yard, take a few shots in "auto" and have a look at the settings for what the camera used to get an acceptable exposure. You might need to use Aperture Priority before jumping into manual mode - so you can see what settings the camera uses. Just my thoughts :)

I'd second Isac's suggestion of using Aperture Priority. Nothing wrong at all with using semi automatic settings and Aperture Priority gives you some flexibility with the depth of field (wider sharpens the object more and blurs the background). It also gives you a faster shutter speed which helps freeze the subject.
