You are most welcome 999, love your work posted here!

My "Window Fishing" has not been too successful the last couple of days. My foot has been swollen and I've had to keep it propped up most of the time, and haven't felt like much shooting. I did manage to get a shot of Otis yesterday, although not one of my best. Otis did not approve of it and didn't want it posted....said it made him look fat, but I will anyhow. He still rants that squirrels deserve a "Pro Shooter", but I'm not paying for one as he demands.

You can always spot Otis...he has that little "sh*t eatin' grin"!

A bit late but these are beautiful Fredric!

I was going to complain on how you still have some color out in your neck of woods, then I realized that it's pictures from July

This would have been the funniest story I have ever read, but a swollen foot is so awful !
Otis is already a Pro ! But you're paying him nuts !

Thank you Andi Lo ! Spring was very late this year

Thank you Jean !

Not much window fishing again today.....still having a problem with the swelling, which makes the cast very uncomfortable. I still got a few of the little Spanish Doves. Just feels good to get something, if you know what I mean!
I feel lucky to have the K5 + Bigma, otherwise I wouldn't be able to shoot much of anything.

I've been laid up inside for about 6 weeks with a broken foot, so my shots are limited to shooting through the glass windows of my home office. I'm sure they would be better if shot outside, but I am just happy to be able to shoot at all!

Lot's of wildlife outside my windows......I've been trying to get a shot of this little guy that comes by every morning for over a week. He is quick and fast moving! This morning I was ready for him!

Many dozens of Cardinals here in the Woods of Otis.......

Twice a day we feed the birds on the top rail of a 55 foot cedar fence. Twice a day it is covered from end to end with these Whitewing doves, over a hundred at a time.

These are excellent pics, Rupert! I like the way you captured the character of each of the birds.

Thanks Mike! When you are all stove up and home-bound, a little photography can brighten your day. I love to see what I can capture through my windows, but also spend a ton of my boredom time viewing the fantastic shots of others here on PF. I very seldom get any "amazing" shots, but love to see the shots of those that do. This is fun stuff, even if you are shut in and unable to participate except through your windows!
Regards!

Thank you! And yes, the 100 macro wr is a great all-round lens, its build and image quality are astonishing! I can only imagine that this is what a limited lens feels like...I'm currently saving for the 40 2.8.
