Breakfast
Lens: Pentax 55-300 Camera: Kx Photo Location: Raleigh NC ISO: 1600 Aperture: F5.8 
Posted By: opiedog, 08-18-2010, 08:47 AM

early morning at the parking lot, i heard this chirping from a tree.
this bird was perhaps 30 feet up and was starting to peck on a tree branch.

i thought it was going for some worms, but nope! berries!
i had no time to setup, just pulled out my Kx and shot wide open with the 55-300.

1/100 f5.8 ISO1600

thanks, adam.

this was cropped. even at 300, the bird wasn't very large, but this tells us how "good" the 55-300 can be

It's a pitty that it isn't sharp at its head. But I know how hard it is to capture this "wildlife"
