Old takumar 135mm shots

The 20th of april is a holiday here in massachusetts .that's when we revolted and started getting rid of the "red coats". I took the day 0ff and took some shots of birds that flock to my feeder here in the "colonies.i shot these pics from about 15ft away and then cropped them a bit. 1000sec at f/8 iso800 k20d.are we better off now than we would have been if the mother land had prevailed back in the 17'oos.
Anyway--enjoy the old lens shots---charliezap

As a Canadian who has spent a lot of time in the US I would say you have done ok since 1776. But if you had decided to stay under the rule of Canada...I think you still would of done ok.

The 135 lens you have takes very good pix. After viewing them I'm thinking...maybe I should dust off my old Takumar 135 mm f 3.5 that I bought new in the early 70's...a great lens.
