DA18-250 at ISO 3200 - Mother's Day flowers



And since this is a squirrel thread, here's my contribution taken with the Bigma (plenty of light, though - ISO 500). Still, if you zoom in close enough, you can almost see me in the reflection of his eye.

It doesn't always work out ...like this guy found out.....
Man Trying To 'Smoke Out' Squirrels Sets His Townhouse On Fire

Squirrels cause over 20K house fires in the US alone each year.....mostly homes of Squirrel Lovers of your nature, so Otis claims!

Best Regards & Happy Grilling!
Yes, they can do a lot of damage. They are cute and and fun to watch, but if they get in the attic and walls you have problems. My neighbor spent $2,000 fixing damage done by squirrels to gable vents and attic damage.

as soon as saw that reply I had to go out and get a shot of the house next door. This is/was Sand'y lair. Sandy was hit by a car a few months ago, but her 2 children still occupy it. (I guess it was in the will.) They have tried everything to get that fixed, short of concrete. They have given up until this fall and will try again.

Damn!....this was a thread about why you want the K5....and those damn Squirrels took it over!

Anyhow, you all know the reasons to want the K5, and best wishes from me and Otis for everyone to get one at their first opportunity. I know some are waiting for it to become affordable for their budget, and I understand that....I wait for things too. One thing that will make it easier is knowing that the wait will be fully worthwhile.

Best Regards!

thanks much! My statement was actually made tongue firmly in cheek, I loved my k-x, and would still be shooting with it if I hadn't gotten a fantastic deal on a k-5...

I captured this Great Blue Heron last evening just before sunset while it was preening with the DA*300/4....

Whoaa! You let that heron use your DA*300 to preen? Man, you are a real wildlife lover.

Now maybe you don't shoot Squirrels, or even like them? ( Are there really people that don't like Squirrels?)...but whatever your passion is, the K5 will make it much easier, more enjoyable, and less hassle to process. Instead of wondering if you will get a shot, you will step out in the world with the confidence that you will.
I do know people who shoot squirrels, mind you it would be nicer if they did it with a camera...
