A couple Red Tail Hawk Shots

I was driving down the road near my home and spotted a red-tailed hawk flying parallel to my direction, about 10 feet off the ground. He lit in a tree, so I pulled over, took out my K-5 and snapped the DA 55-300mm on, and cautiously approached the tree, snapping as many shots as I could get.

Great shots, Lawson. The yellow iris of a young buteo shows up so well here. They turn dark brown on adults.

Felt like I was at risk losing my fingers to the cold, but the evening walk through Brussels paid off (I think):

A little Pentax love von Ineound auf Flickr

Rrecently I have been using my Canon 5D in most cases. Today I grabbed my K5 for a exhibition visit, taking only my two favorite focal lengths with me (24/50; 35/80ish in fullframe terms). The Pentax body is just awesome - size, buttons, ergonomics. Everything is where its meant to be, especially with gloves. The stabilization is extremely useful, and I realized how much I have missed it. Same goes for noise-performance.

I wish I could drop the 5D. However, there are two main reasons I want to keep it, though I don’t own the latter, yet:
- a fast 35mm prime
- a 24mm TSE

I’d be fine with the DA*55mm instead of a 85mmF1.8, so no worries here. Does anyone have experiences with the Sigma 24mmF1.8?

Btw.: This was an exhibition of Margarete Bourke-White. She was truley a gifted photographer. Seeing those pictures, I realized two things:
- Talent beats equipment - use your eyes and inspiration
- Black and white means black and white! A black and white picture is meant to have real blacks and real whites….
