All of them...but #2 is so saucy, like a really great smooth gravy with a touch of turmeric. Love #4, it could easily be in some parts of Texas...great color and composition. #6...my favorite color! #9...like Magic!

Not much here yet today......only Otis squealing that he thinks he sees a damn cat?


Regards!

No question about it, but those are more fine shots from FS. I especially liked the earth-toned cliffs. Here are a few more shots from Sunday's street fair.

I like those....and I really like the processing. What kind of street fair was it? That second shot is perfect!

Not much here today, certainly not anything special, but at least I did take a few snaps to keep in practice.

It is very rare to see a Jay take a break like this, they are very hyper and paranoid birds constantly on the move.


Calling out for her mommy?


Such peaceful little birdies!




I'm pretty sure this was Otis, but he wouldn't turn his head when I called......maybe he was hiding in the open, or maybe he was fast asleep again?


Regards!

Loving the images posted in this thread as they all go to show what an awesome camera the K-5 IIs really is. I don't believe it ever got the acknowledgement it really deserves which is possibly because of its model name. People just assumed it to be merely an "update" of the K-5. I did own the K-5 before and I certainly feel the IIs is a whole different ballgame. Nothing to share today as I took my GR out for a spin yesterday.

That photos of the 'sleeping squirrel' gives new insight into an Australian saying (with opposite meaning)

"I'm flat out like a lizard drinking"

Some spring week three shots

I think it was because it cut into the sale of the K3, and even here on PForums it was more or less put on the back shelf to avoid conflict with the K3. For those not needing more MP, and most don't, I think it is a better choice than the K3......my personal opinion, of course. If you already owned a K5 original, there is little to no learning curve, just better IQ and focus abilities as well as better color and WB.

This little Jay is thinking of cutting into the food supply of Otis Squirrel......and that is a bad and very risky idea. Squirrels are well schooled in making creamy gravy out of pesky birdies.

Nice shooting...love that purple one, gorgeous!

Otis asked them to pose for TV commercials......on the Gourmet Food Show?

Not too bad for ISO 6400!


Dark gravy?


Light gravy?


Otis liked this one....already had the feet cut off!


I'll try to shoot a few handsome squirrels today if they will pose. Winter is coming and they have been busy storing up nuts and insulating their winter homes, but they might take a little break for a few shots?

Regards!

Peanut farmer at work! You gotta be quick to get a shot, the Bigma is a big ol' slow lens and if you aren't ready, they are gone before you can snap!

Despite having a K3 I have to admit that I am really enjoying my K5iis

More spring flowers (some additional Diuris tricolor - my favourite ground orchid)
