I like that the K-5 shows the subtle color of the veins in this bee's wings. You can almost tell there is bee blood circulating there. And all this detail at ISO 6400 too! I just cannot get over how powerfully the K-5 pulls quality images out of impossible exposure situations.

This shot: Pentax K-5, Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 LD Di macro, Tokina 2X Teleconvertor, in macro mode 2X300mm=600mm, approx F/11, 1/1600s, 6400 ISO, one of a high speed burst, manual focus, TAv-AE, bright sunlight, hand held.


Wow. You continue to impress me with that Tamron. Great stuff.

Nice one Nathan!

A recent one, my son turned 4 yesterday-
Wow, great shot! I love the expression on his face. ISO?

Does anyone remember the famous Kodak "Candlelight shot" when they introduced, what was it? Plus-X? Tri-X?

Shot today at a bike/car show - lead singer from a local band. Used my Vtar 70~210 2.8 to nab this one:

Here's a B&W conversion of a picture I took a few weeks ago with the 100mm f2.8 macro ( Schneider D-Xenon I LOVE this lens ) - Nik Silver Efex:

This looks identical to my dog, who is also a Yorkie Poo. Really cute dog (but I'm biased because he looks like mine).

Bumble Bee

Have you ever tried to shoot a Bumble Bee in mid flight? I gave it a go to test my reaction and the speed of the K5 with the DA* 60-260. It is not easy to track a Bee darting back and forth in the sky with the lens extended to the full 260mm.

For all those who say there is no speed in that combination have a look here.

Greetings

Thanks
I actually prefer "Yorkie Poodle mix" to "Yorkie Poo" because it sounds more masculine, LOL Although, I don't think it matters because he looks so tiny when I am walking him down the street

jstevewhite,
What lens were you using?
Did you use a flash?

Nice work
